Draft: Poured a light copper color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of light fruity ester with some light dry caramel malt with a dry floral hops presence that is also noticeable. Taste is also dominated by dry caramel malt with a dry and slightly bitter hops presence. Body is pretty full for style with good carbonation. Well brewed for the style.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.

Poured a brassy hue with a one finger frothy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured sweet pale malts and a light grassy hop.

The taste offered sweet round malts, a touch of honey, some fruity esters and a grassy hop.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a pretty tasty ale.
