Pours a transparent amber color with a soft 3 fingers of white head. Walls of lacing cling with stickiness.
The nose has some sweet buttery malt notes, followed by a hoppy pine resin aroma. Maybe some juicy fruit offered from the hops.
The flavor profile is similar to the nose. Subtle bitter hoppiness up front with an ample amount of sweet buttery goodness.
The mouthfeel is medium-bodied with very appropriate carbonation. Slightly chewy yet very drinkable.
Overall, with just a bit more hops this beer would be quite balanced. Otherwise, very solid.
Serving type: on-tap

12 oz glass into a pint glass over the weekend. Best by 7/10/14, so a couple days past. Oh well.
Looks good, amber with a yellow tint, 1 inch head somewhere between creamy and foamy (croamy?) Very good lacing. Not a lot of carbonation here.
Not getting anything on the nose. Maybe the old snout is off today.
Taste I'm getting is very subtle across the board. And improves toward the back end of the drink. A malt sweetness, with a faint but obvious hop bite (if that makes any sense) Could be affected by being at the end of its best by date.
Mouth was medium, neither soft or dry
Overall, not my favorite beer from one of the better breweries. But still a decent drink.
