look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: pours a nice copper orange. A finger or more of a tannish head with pretty good retention. Leaves a good strong lacing along the sides of the glass. Strong clarity and a good brightness.

Smell: nutty. Earthy. Some slight caramel. Some grassiness. Some toasted malts

Tastes: opens with a little bit of toasted malts and some lightly sweet caramel malts. Some grassiness comes across from time to time. Some slightly spicy noble hops come through towards the end.

Mouthfeel: lighter. A little bit overly sweet.

Overall: not a bad beer but not on my list to drink again. A bit to sweet and not quite as balanced as I'd prefer.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

12 oz. bottle poured into a craft tumbler

A- Copper with great clarity. White head. Dense. Speckles of lacing.

S- Smell is toasty malt with some nice earthy noble hops. Subtly spicy. Also a subtle sweetness.

T- Sweetness comes out more, but is fairly delicate. Hops are earthy and balance well. All backed up by a toasty malt character.

M- Medium body. Crisp finish. Carbonation is fine.

O- Very tasty. Hop profile is great. The malt character is a great balance of toasty and sweet.
