Thanks to jlindros. Pours a nice medium brown-ish amber. It's cloudy and inviting. The head is off-white and large. Very good retention and good lacing. Kinda boring floral hoppiness on a caramel malt backbone with a bit of toasty sweetness to it. Honeysuckle, mint, light grapefruit, pine. Some bubblegum in that sweetness. Malt character is stronger than I like. Taste has restrained sweetness but again a bit too much malt flavor for me. A good deal of lightly toasted sugar. Bitterness is a touch bland but at a nice level. Nice yeasty bitter note throughout the beer, though it leaves an underwhelming finish. A touch vegetal. I'm not a big fan of the interaction between the dry-ish caramel malt and floral-citric hops. Carbonation is a bit higher than normal. Somewhat creamy. Light hop oiliness. Almost too light for the malt character. This seems like a well made beer, but it doesn't quite sit right with me.
