3.68/5 rDev -6.6%
Pours light amber, burnt orange/copper. Quite clear with just a little haze. Small off-white head that recedes quickly. Some lacing.
Caramelized orange in the aroma. Quite estery. Toasted malt and a hint of diacetyl though not to an offensive degree. Spicy slightly fruity hop character.
Caramel malts up front with a slight apple character. Spicy and firmly bitter hops. Biscuity malt follow. Seems slightly sweet even with the bitterness, but age may have played a part in subduing the hops.
Medium bodied with low carbonation. Mineral rich water character presents itself in the finish.
Well balanced, but just a bit sweet. Probably not the freshest, but such is the case with imports that likely sit on the shelf for a while.

11.2oz bottle into an imperial pint
A - Crystal clear light copper with a decent head that dissipates quickly but laces the glass nicely.
S - Grain and malt with light, citrusy hops.
T - Follows nose. Rich grain and malt. Light, refreshing citrusy hops. Slightly fruity at the end.
M - Light and clean with a light carbonation.
O - A nicely malty ale that is better drunk at a bit above cellar temps. Very well balanced. A great ale for spring through summer. The hoppiness of this ale can be enjoyed anytime.
