12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip.

Appearance: Pours a clear orange-copper with a big white head. Heavy lacing.

Aromas: Smells of buttery bread, malt, toffee, floral hops, biscuits and a little wine.

Taste: Follows the nose, and it's pretty tasty. Vinous note dominates, more than in the nose. Malt, toffee and biscuit are also up front.

Mouthfeel: More medium-bodied than I anticipated.

Overall: Nice beer. Not super "summery," but a nice, balanced, all-purpose ale with an appealing flavor profile.
