4.13/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Poured into a pint glass with a great head and lacing. The head died down fairly quickly but lacing was present throughout. Color was a clear golden brown.

S - Malty smell with a faint resin hop smell. Bottle said this was made with cascade and challenger hops although they were in mild proportions.

T - Mild hops, slight taste of apple. Very smooth taste, the bitterness of the hops were a little more present in the aftertaste. Very nice.

M/D - Good caronation feel, smooth taste. Was a little malty and sweet for above a 4.0. That said I liked this beer and will track down some more offerings. It was an easy going, pleasant beer.

500 mL brown bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: great copper colour, nice carbonation settling into a 3-finger head (beige) leaving plenty of lacing.

S: citrusy (mildly) with a bit of earthiness.

T: sharp and bitter, but more mild citrus fruits than earthy undertones.

M: moderate carbonation, refreshing

D: would definitely drink again (preferrably when I'm less tired and can enjoy it more!)
