A: Pours a great golden color with nice head on top very little if any lacing but still very crisp and apple cider looking. Tastey in appearance.

S: Aroma is thin and yet hoppyenough to get your attention. Not as much malt and hop aroma as I was hoping for but still very nice.

T: Taste is nutty and hopped with some nice mix of floral and citrus with a sweet hiding malt behind the scene .

M: Mouthfeel is medium bodied and has a silky feel to it.

O: Overall a good drinker and like it . Very sound beer with good qualities over shadowing the bad.

A- Pours a brownish amber into my snifter with one finger of head that disippates quickly.

S- roasted malty smell at front (not at all what I expected). But towards the end some citrus, tangerine smell took over. Very light smell, but not bad.

T- On the front there is just a tad bit of citrusy hop flavor. Then BAM! A load of deep roasted malts.

M- Feels almost... warm on the mouth. Could be due to other factors, but definitely had to be noted. Although not very syrupy and silky, it does have a good bit of syrupy silkiness for the low alcohol content.

O- Overall, not bad. Taste was not great but it gets a 3.5 because I cannot do 3.25 and because it has a different taste for a pale ale that worked well. Aroma was certainly disappointing. Could have used some dry hopping to give it some aroma.

Aroma: Doughy and fresh yeast aromas up front. I don't mind it but the yeast smell is bordering on overpowering and I can get anything other than that. No esters or hop aroma. Odd.

Appearance: Slightly cloudy rich amber pour with sticky off-white head. Head retention is good.

Flavor: Some initial earthy bitterness, some mild pine tar resin, and a touch more doughy bread character. Balance is slightly bitter. Finish is clean and dry.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body with lively, high carbonation. No warmth, creaminess, or astringency.

Overall impression: Had a hard time getting past the yeasty aroma. May have been an old sample but no way to tell. Won't try again.
