12 oz. into a pint glass
Pours a copper-ish bright amber hue with a one finger cream colored loose head that disappears quickly to leave a light ring of foam and moderate lacing. Smell is loaded with caramel malts with a backing floral hoppy-ness that is somewhat nicely balanced. Taste lives up to the nose, nice sweet malts with some decent hops cutting through, but not overpowering. Lingering nutty taste with a sweet finish. Light body with moderate to high carbonation. A nice refreshing beer that is good and simple, with enough bitter hops to have a flavor without being too hoppy. Are there better examples of the style? Sure. Is this still something that I would want to keep in my fridge when I want a solid beer for about any occasion? Definitely.
