New at Trackside inn Medicine Hat. Certainly not for someone on a tight budget as these run over $20/4 pack.

Has a nice look. Pours a bright aprocot colour, very cloudy, with and active head typical of the style. Head settles into anice frothy cap.

Delicious aroma of all things I like in a BPA. Nice spiciness, with a sweet floral fruitiness.

Flavors are nicely balanced. The spice, fruit, pale malts, dry hops, all work in nice concert with one another.

Smooth, slickly slick mouthfeel. Body is just right for this reviewer. Not too chewy, not too fizzy.

Very good take on the style. look for more good things from this brewer

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours a light honey with a ridiculously big head. Took several minutes to go down enough to enjoy it.

S - Very light aroma. Lots of caramel and a slight floralness to it

T - Mild flavor. Hints of caramel, lemon, and rose. Seems to alternate between bitter and sweet and has a strong yeastiness on the finish

M - Medium body. Quite smooth while bubbly in the mooth.

O - A nice amber that is somewhat unique. The floral aromas and flavor set it apart from the rest.
