Amber in color with excellent clarity. A fingernail of khaki colored foam is on top. Light Brussels lacing. Aroma of gentle amber malt is present. The flavor is packed with gentle notes of amber malt and a touch of caramel. The mouth is fairly light,but with a bit of depth and smoothness.

Bottle to pint glass

A- pours a bright amber-orange color with a small creamy off-white colored head that retains nicely on top long after the pour

S- floral and grassy hop aroma compliments a toasted bready malt sweetness with notes of caramel & brown sugar

T- malty base up front with notes of fresh biscuit, caramel, toast, cereal grain and white raisins. Floral hop notes provide a subtle bitterness that continues to the finish

M- medium body and carbonation lead to a foamy mouthfeel that continues into crisp finish

O- a nice malty & easy drinking brew for the fall that has some nice floral notes to boot

Pours a deep clear amber. The fizzy white head burns away quickly. The aroma is nonexistent and the taste follows closely. Only the faintest malt tones exist. Body has a decent weight and just a tinge of carbonation. We'll crafted except for the total lack of flavor.
