3/5  rDev -12.8%

Pours a very light orange with a quickly dissolving creamy head. Aroma of fruit and bread. First taste is of caramel, moderate malty backbone. No discernible hop presence. Very thin mouthfeel. Very sweet overall character. Smooth drinking and average for the style.

Bottle poured into a BarrelHouse Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours deep copper with an off white head that settles quickly.

S: Very malty with some floral hops.

T: Very malt forward, bready slightly nutty with some light caramel sweetness, some fruitiness, and floral hops. Very clean finish.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: A pretty solid (and in my opinion underrated) fall brew.
