Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass
Appearance – Served a hazy golden orange color with a one finger white head. The head faded slowly over time to give a spotty lacing.
Smell – The aroma is heaviest citrus and a sweeter malt smell. Mixed with these are aromas of a more woody and peaty nature as well as some lighter notes of yeast and spice.
Taste – The taste begins with a nice caramel flavor with some hints of a citrus sweetness mixed within. As the flavor moves forward some buttery flavors comes to the tongue, with the caramel taste that was present in the beginning taking a more toffee like nature. This buttery flavor is also accompanied by some yeast as well as a nice oak like taste. These flavor blend well with the sweet and savory flavors the preceded their arrival and create a nice smooth taste. Toward the end, a light herbal flavor mixes with the rest to leave a nice lingering aftertaste on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was on the average side with the carbonation level being slightly on the higher side. While a slightly thicker body may have been better for the toffee and buttery flavors, the carbonation did do a nice job with in making it a rather refreshing tasting brew. Overall a pretty good balance.
Overall – A pretty easy drinking brew with some nice oak and yeasty flavors. Quite enjoyable.
Serving type: on-tap
