3.49/5 rDev +0.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
pours out a murky bronze colour with a thin light tan head. sparse lace. sweet maltiness on the nose with a slight butter and herb accent accented by some grassy notes. the grassy and herbal hop profile carries over to the taste, providing a pleasantly bitter bite that easily balances out the residual sweetness. malt base is meekly sweet showing off a touch of burnt sugar and toasted bread. a fair body for a lower ABV steam beer with a unique mouthfeel that teeters back and forth between sugary sweet and coarsely bitter. nice drinkability. has a session aspect to it.
overall, a rather flavourful brew imbedded within a unique style. sublimely balanced and nuanced. i'd like to sample this on tap.

Had this on tap in standard pint glass at perfect temperature 48-50 degrees
Appearance: beautiful amber color with 1.5-2 finger head.
Smell: Dry hopped, floral, touch of citrus, wheat malt
Taste: touch of mango, with a dry spicy finish. hoppy but very flavorful
Mouthfeel: nice carbonation, good balance.
Overall; definitely a nice spring beer that has a lively taste and a surprising hoppy note.

I enjoyed this from the 12oz brown bottle in a teku chilled, purchased at Brass Rail bottled on Feb 3 2014.
The color is deep amber bordering on bronze with light chill haze, but thick proud head of white with very fine bead with great retention, the lace sticks in a web formation. The smell is very herbal from the hops with slight grainy odor with earthy yeast element adding a light spice ester. The feel is moderately carbonated with gentle bitterness and mild sweetness with a toasted grain texure and light hint of yeast fruitiness with semi-dry finish.
The flavor starts peppery and herbal from the hops which bring out a sort of earthy complimentary malt element with lager-like yeast flavors bringin some mineral elements along with toastiness in the malt and a light almond-like nutty sweetness with a subtle caramel or vienna flavor which compliments the yeast and adds a bit of depth. Overall I would not say this is the best example of the style, but it is better than average in most regards including drinkability...I would try this on draft.
