Poured into a pint glass.

Pours a deep dark orange, with a small tan head that settles to a lace island. Brew has minimal lacing.

Smells malty, with some floral hops.

Brew is very smooth, has a subtle balance of the malts and hops. A tade bit understated in the flavor department, I think this brew makes up for that with its good tatse and easy drinkability.

This brew is case worthy - not an overly flavorful brew for this style. But it is extreamly drinkable and tasty enough. Yet another stellar brew from SA.
