Coppery-gold in color with a nice sized orange tinted white head. The lace shifts around by way of patchy spots as you drink. Aroma is sweet and toasty with bright fruity yeast esters, floral scents, and clove spice. Nice clean aromas, but prominently yeasty. Taste is good. Bock-like nutty maltiness, light caramel, fruit, tart apples, farmy floral, zesty spice, anise, nutmeg, all leading into a powdery dryness. Mouthfeel is a touch syrupy, smooth, chalky.

This beer is pretty good. Could use some fine tuning... I certainly think this new brewery has potential.

Slightly hazy deep gold topped by a small, sudsy head that dissipates to a thin creamy ring. Spiced apple ester, nutty aromas and some licorice and clove. Lots of yeastiness upfront in the flavor with a nice toasty, nutty maltiness underneath - but the problem is that it's completely buried. If they can rein in the yeast a bit, this will fit the style somewhat better. This still has a "homebrewish" quality that will probably diminish once they dial in the recipe and get more comfortable. Medium bodied and creamy smooth - could use some increased dryness in the finish. I'll revisit this in the future for sure...
