12 oz bottle. Pours amber with long lasting white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of Noble hops and biscuit malt. Body is medium and crisp. Grassy hops, bready malt and some caramel combine on the palate. Long finish becomes dry. Overall this is OK brew.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

A: pours a clear brown-amber, with antique-white foam, fair carbonation.

S: buttery/toasty malt scent, light sweetness--caramel and hops, even lighter essence of spices.

T: begins clean, malt notes are buttery, toasty, and sweet, well-complemented by the sweet floral hop notes lingering into a lightly spicy, but very mild finish.

O: Well balanced and easy to drink, definitely will be looking to have this again soon.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: A fairly dark amber with a head about one finger thick.

Aroma: Caramel malts, light citrus, a few piney bits, slightly biscuity and buttery.

Taste: Malty in the front, crisp mouthfeel, traces of sweet fruits. Piney and some citrus.

Notes: There is not too much to this one a straight forward drinkable beer. Cheers.
