Picked up a sixer from BevMo back in late May for $7.49. Best before 050914...oh well.

Beer poured amber-orange with a nice white head that is leaving some lacing behind.

Nose is caramel, toasted malts, fruity.

Taste is toasted caramel malts that blend nicely with a juicy citrus hop. Finish is lightly bitter.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and pretty smooth. Carbonation is light.

Overall this is a delicious brew, one of the best if not the best i have tried in this style. It may be a bit dated now but i hope this is brewed nest spring!

Poured into a Chuckanut pint glass. Pours a medium to dark bronze amber with a fine one finger khaki head with great retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel and light biscuit malt, light earthy nuttiness. Flavor is biscuit malt, tea, faint citrus with a light grassy hop finish. Medium bodied with good carbonation. A nice light bitter with traditional tasting malt and a bit more hops than traditional, but without breaking character. A worthy domestic take on this style.
