Notes/Commercial Description:
Richly malty and long on the palate, with just enough hop backing to make this beautiful amber colored "alt" style beer notably well balanced.

Acquired via trade from KenGage, so a big "Thank you" goes out to him. Poured from a 22oz bottle into a mug glass.

A: The beer is a deep orange/amber color, with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is of caramelized malts, fruit and some hops.

T: The taste is bready and a little sweet up front with flavors of caramel, fruit and grain. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy. There's a mild hops presence that brings a very good balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Smooth and crisp, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

D: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, this is a nice solid beer with a good amount of substance that makes it worth drinking for a long time.
