Poured a sharply clear, dark gold color, plenty of lively carbonation producing a thick, chunky, white head. Honey and cereal aroma; toffee. Tastes of warm bread crust, slightly sweet, and finishes with a crisp hop bitterness. Medium-light body; crisp finish.

A very satisfying, malty lager with just the right touch of hop bitterness and mild sugary sweetness. Nicely balanced and very refreshing.

The last of the camp out leftovers bought for a friend from Louisiana.

Pours with a rolling, tan head. Color is amber of course. Smells of caramel and tea. Tastes of more caramel with spicy notes in the middle and sublte apricot at the finish.

This is a well crafted, smooth and simple beer, and there's nothing wrong with that.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. The label doesn’t list the abv on the label but there is a short description of the beer. It also appears to have a best before date system which marks the date with a small notch. (It was note notched however)

Appearance: The body has a nice orange amber color with a smooth creamy off white head. The head holds on well and makes some slick lacing on the glass.

Smell: It has a light overall aroma with mild toasty and nutty maltiness.

Taste / Palate: The flavor has an easy drinking malty character with mild sweetness through out. It matches the aroma with light nutty toasted and bready notes with a touch of light hops for balance.
