A: Pours a brilliant, clear golden amber with a bubbly, lingering white head.
S: Aromas of caramel, toffee, biscuits, crackers, herbs, grass, plums, apricot, nectarine, white peach and mild citrus are present on the nose.
T: Notes of biscuits, crackers, caramel, minerals, toffee, nougat, sweet cream, plums, apricots, honey, white peach, nectarine, lemon zest, lime, orange, grass, and herbs wash across the palate. The finish is balanced with biscuit and cracker notes underscored by flavors of honey, apricot, nectarine, and lemon zest.
M: On the lighter side of medium, milky, smooth, and silky. Carbonation is delicately prickly.
O: An amazing APA, this is most likely one of the best examples of the style I have ever had the pleasure of drinking. This ale displays a gorgeous texture and flavor profile. The fact that I could drink this all day reminds me of why this beer is considered a classic. For fans of the style, I cannot recommend it highly enough.
