Nice clean shade of orange with copper streaks. Good carbonation bubbles, but very little head that didn't last, and no lacing.

Some sweet malt, but not much else on the nose. Light hints of barley, and spice.

Nice balance, with a clean, crisp mouthfeel, light bodied. Hints of malt with the slightest bit of caramel. If looking for a big complex beer look elsewhere.

Easily drinkable.

I got this brew as an extra in a trade with Mistofminn, Thanks Brad!

12oz bottle served in a glass beer mug.

Clear orange/amber color with a small off-white head that thinned to a ring.
Caramel malt and some earthiness.
Balanced flavor of malt and earthy hops with no hint of higher abv.
Medium bodied with a slick feel.
Drinkable, yes and worth a try.
