This is one of those beers that I seems to come full circle on my beer journey.

It pours a very clear copper with nice white head.

The smell is somewhat laid back but with malt and an earthy spice coming through.

The taste is extremely malty on the front and mid. Very bready with a lingering bitterness on the back.

Simple and amazing beer. I'm surprised I have not reviewed this before.

Had this on draft with dinner at a restaurant. Poured 22oz. into a 'texas' sized glass.

A- Dark copper, amber in color. Clear with this head to it. Left small amounts of lace on glass.

S- Sweet smelling, caramel malts mostly. Floral hop aroma towards the end of it.

T- Sweeter taste but good balance. Floral hops come through most. Maybe some citrus hop flavor as well. Bitterness is fairly mild as hops are cut into by sweet malts. Good balance and enjoyable.

M- Lighter body, moderate carbonation to it.

O- Not to shabby. Enjoyed 2 glasses of it. Doubt I would pick it over some other local craft, but out at a restaurant wouldn't mind another glass.
