Beer poured a caramel color with a large frothy head. Aroma was coriander, orange peel, grains of paradise, with honey-like malts and caramel. Taste was very sturdy. This brew will not be overwhelmed by typical bar foods. Sweetness was moderate with a pleasant balanced spiciness. Grainy. Mouthfeel was thick at first, but mellows quickly and dissipates on the palate. Overall an excellent beer. Substantial.

On tap in a standard pint glass.
A- Maybe it was the lighting; an amber ale with true amber color, full creamy white head and lots of sticky foam lacing. A touch of haze in the body from the yeast, perhaps.
S- Orange and spice, some light malt and yeast.
T- Slightly sweet malt combined with yeast dryness and fruits, spices.
M- Easy drinking with some hope bitterness and yeast and spice pungency. Dry finish.
O- Friendly drinker with lots of flavor, 6.5% abv is manageable; right level of hop bitterness, too.
Serving type: on-tap
