Caramel sweet upfront with spicy hop halfway through followed up with more tea-like sweetness. As the beer warms, I pick up more toasted malt and grains. Light bodied and smooth drinking.

A: Pours a crystal clear copper in color with moderate to heavy amounts of active visible carbonation that rises quickly from the bottom of the glass and some amber highlights. The beer has a two finger tall foamy tan head that slowly reduces to a medium to large sized thick cap in the center of the glass surrounded by a medium thick layer covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of toasted malts with a light aroma of caramel sweetness. Also there are some light aromas of grassy + herbal hops.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of toasted malts with a light amount of caramel sweetness. That is followed by light flavors of grassy + herbal hops which imparts a very light amount of bitterness which does not linger for long.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin/watery.

O: Surprise, surprise...this beer does not have the aroma or flavor of skunk which is surprising considering I grabbed it as a single in a grocery store with bright fluorescent lights and it comes in a green bottle. Better than I was expecting, since I was expecting the skunkiness to be present but still not an amazing representation of the style. Easy to drink.
