3.75/5 rDev +5.6%
Served on-tap in a clear Shaker pint glass at Vermont Pub and Brewery (Burlington, VT).
A: Bright beer, clear caramel color with 1-finger of frothy, foamy beige head with good retention and leaves a collar of lace. (4.25)
S: Soft malty aromas with bread and cracker, medium caramel, and earthy, herbal hopping with a hint of grassy citrus. (3.5)
T: I liked the flavor of this beer overall, but it finishes a bit too sweet, but the profile is pleasant enough. The bready maltiness is present in the start and carries through to a sweet medium caramel note. The hops cut in with a good dose of bitterness, medium at least, but doesn't leave a lot of hop flavor. I think the finish would seem less sweet if the hops flavor was increased. Yeast esters of light fruitiness are there but mild. (3.75)
M: Good mouthfeel on this beer, served with low carbonation, with a light-medium body with a creamy texture that is really enjoyable and is the best feature of this beer. (4.25)
O: I was a little bit pleasantly surprised by this beer -- it brings a creamy mouthfeel with an interesting blend of maltiness with bready, crackery, and medium caramel notes, and then a little plum, probably from special roast or similar malt. A little sweet in the finish but with plenty of bitterness through the early- and mid-palate to be a satisfying session beer.

Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a hazed caramel-copper coloring with a filmy, bright-white head. Nose of cream and subtle bitterness. Flavors are creamy and bitter, very blended and balanced, with a clean finish. The aftertaste is minimal, with a steady sweetness. Full bodied and very tasty. Easy to drink with the lower ABV.

Poured a dark brass hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was decent retention and lacing.
The smell featured round bready malts and a grassy hop spice.
The taste consisted of toasted bready malts, a touch of honey and an herbal and grassy hop.
The mouthfeel was typical of the style with a gentle carbonation.
Overall a tasty sessionable bitter.
