Pours a clear golden color with a small white head.

Scent of light oak, sweet, juicy hops, citrus, grass, and a hint of caramel. The oak character is nice and balanced here.

Taste of cereal, malts, light sweet sugars, honey, subtle hops, and sweet oak. The bitterness is nice, but the beer falls just shy of being great. It's a bit like eating Honey Combs with an IPA poured over them.

Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with a good, smooth carbonation.

If this is a sign of things to come, I cannot wait to drink more of the Two Brothers oak aged beers.

It's hard for me to not like an IPA, so I like this one. But it is not at one I would seek out again. The taste is a tad dark, like a scottish ale or something. I am drinking it a bit warm, so that may color my opinion, but the smell is also undistinguished.

The brewery is new to me, so I wonder if all their brews are like this. I have a few of these to drink, so I also wonder if I will ike them better very cold.
