look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Twelve ouncer poured into a pint glass. Grabbed in a mixed six offering.

Pours medium amber, mostly light, with touches of foam. Malty rich caramel smell, some toffee. Hearty malt taste with a good firm hop. Nice bite at close, really pops the flavor.

Overall another good one from BP.

look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3

On tap at Sawmill Tap Room 4/28/12

A - orangish amber; thin lacing of white head; little retention

S - very little is anything in the nose; faintly metallic

T - citrusy, caramel, faint chocolate, fruity

M - medium bodied, smooth, lightly carbonated

This was a bit disappointing. It didn't have much flavor-wise that stood out, but it had some characteristics that lead me more towards an amber ale. In the end it was boring, unbalanced, and not specifically stylistic.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.

A: Deep copper color. Lacy head.

S: Soft hop aroma (citrus).

T: Balanced taste, easy to drink. Finish stays in your mouth for a few beats with mild bitterness.

M: Medium body for the style, a little thin overall. Good amount of carbonation.

O: Certainly nothing exciting, but decent. An easy beer to grab out of the fridge on a warm afternoon when it's available.

Poured into a standard pint glass a clear deep copper with a tightly formed 1/2 finger white head that held well.toasty bread and nutty maltiness mixed with some leafy/herbal hops,a nice combo.The feel was prickly in the mouth and I couldnt get over that,it really took away alot from the flavors for me.Nutty and toasted on the palate upfront with a decent shot of earthy,leafy hops in the finish,not bad at all.The beer has alot going for it it has good balance but the mouthfeel for me kept my score a little lower than it should have been.

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

Poured into a standard shaker pint glass. Glass of cold water on the side to sip from periodically.

Appearance: As served the beer is a clear golden color with a ¼” white head that recedes to leave bits of lacing on the side. Eventually the head recedes to a ring around the glass. For about the first 1/3 of the beer sipping leaves some modest speckles of lacing on the glass.

Smell: The aroma is mostly from the malt so there’s some caramel and bready character. The hops are well in the background and there seem to be bits of pine and citrus, and the whole is quite plesant.

Taste: The flavor is pretty much as predicted by the nose. There is a nice malty character tinged with gentle citric and pine notes.

Mouthfeel: The mouth feel is on the light side of medium bodied and the carbonation is there but not particularly active. The finis is medium long and begins in the malt. It then tapers gently off into some dry hop bitterness.

Drinkability and Overall Impression: I enjoyed this one and also found it went well the food I had ordered. There is nothing “in your face” about this beer and a gentle balance between the malts and the hopes is the order of the day. My overall impression is that this is a nice, well made beer that I’d be happy to have again. In addition I think it would be a great beer to have during an evening of dining and good conversation with friends.

Bought a single bottle from Trader Joe's. Poured into a ikea glass. Poured a nice copper color with a quickly dissipating white head, left not lacing. Not much at all on the nose. Taste is average, mainly pine. Overall, there is nothing compelling about this beer.
