look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, golden, amber, color, with a finger and a half of white-colored head that dissolved away into a thin lacing of foam that completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Strong aromas of bready, toasted malt, imparting aromas of biscuits and freshly-baked sourdough bread. There are also aromas of caramel, black pepper and hits of orange peel. Quite nice.

Taste: Tasty! Lots of toasted malt up front, followed by some brown sugar and caramel-like sweetness, some spices of black pepper and thyme. Finally, the beer finishes with some pronounced, but, balanced, piney, slightly resin-like hops. It’s a very tasty beer.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, crisp and nicely effervescent as there’s quite a bit of carbonation to tickle the taste buds. With an ABV of 5.1%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is quite a tasty beer. Malty, bready, with hints of spice and sweetness, and easy to drink. A very nice beer. Looking forward to trying other Atlas Brew Works beers. Recommended. (1,039 characters)

Poured from the can into a nonic pint glass.

Deep and slightly muddy orange/red body, slightly cloudy, but looking fairly alright if a bit murky on the body color. Forms an off tan almost orange/yellow tinge head, at a simple three fingers with a flat top styro puck. Minimal retention, a bit creamy, but otherwise fine.

Nice mild bread notes on the aroma, with some good toasty to match. Faint hint of sticky lager like pasty yeast quality, with a clean sensation. Mild hints of citrus fruit but very small but noticeable. Pretty basic but solid.

Palate washes a little wet, but manages some of the basics. Real interesting notes of fruit on this, almost comes like an ale yeast esters flavor but has to be from some sort of fruit forward American hop variety. Slightly juicy but washes a bit to wet off the palate with some fruit orange, mild spice, and lemon tropics in the mid palate. Malt angle manages a bit of sweetness but fairly subdued, but aftertaste brings some toast. Some warmth seems to bring out some interesting banana as well. Crispness seems a bit downsided, with carbonation being fairly middle of the road but gives some good sticky lager yeast on the finish as well.

It's an interesting take on a steam brew, but is missing I think some of the toasty notes and classic bready character I like from the style. It's still a very solid enjoyable brew though. Hope someday they can NSFW. (1,422 characters)
