Poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass. Good looking beer, light amber color with excellent clarity. It has an orange creamy colored head that produces great lacing. A very good looking beer. For this style of beer, it's incredibly malted in my opinion and it really shows in the smell. It has a sweet caramelized/toffee smell followed by some earthy pine hops. Really well balanced in the smell, pretty impressive. The taste is much like the smell. Sweet initially from the caramelized malts has a toffee and buttery taste as well then the hops follow to provide a nice flavor. It's an incredibly well balanced ale. It's I'd say medium bodied, but I must say I'm impressed on how light it feels for how well malted it is. It has a buttery smooth feel that has a nice bitter finish from the hops. With all that's going on it's really drinkable. I'd love to have it on tap on a nice hot summer day.
