Pour a dark gold with a one finger head. There was average lacing as the head dissipated.

Aroma of hops and malt.

Taste has just a hint of hops and hops.

Mouthfeel is nice but just a little weaker than I expected.

Overall this was a very nice beer. It was a little older than I expected and I'm looking forward to finding this with a fresher brew date. This one was 7 months old. The upside is they do date the bottles. Now if I can find it when it is less than 4 months old I will revisit my review. Even at this age it was quite good.

Poured from a bottle into a chilled pint glass. Quarter inch foamy head dissipated in a few minutes leaving some lingering lacing. The color is a coppery/gold, not quite amber. Very minimal perceivable smell. Not sure about that one. Medium body, very nice feel in the mouth; a bit creamy. Very easy drinking beer. Malty flavor with no extreme overtones. Just a hint of citrus. Overall very nicely balanced ale.
