Amber in color with tan head

Fairly hoppy with a slight brown sugar caramel smell.

Citrusy and floral hops with a nice balanced malt flavor.

Not too bad, but I would prefer less citrus hops.

Beautiful beer in the glass. Deep rich copper color, small head, great carbonation. Aromas of caramel and distinct bitterness. Spicy, clean taste. Malt - forward (seems appropriate), with nice balance through the bittering hops. Medium mouth, bit of that spicy aftertaste. Mmmm. About 2 weeks old. Not super hoppy if that's your thing, but a great option for something different. Well-crafted amber.

Pours a great gold color nose is robust and piny. The hops blend together very well balancing it out surprisingly well.

Mild & smooth. A good session beer, & better then most other examples of the style.
