Deep gold. Bit dipper color as a Pale Ale. Fine head. Malty aroma is dominant. A little bit diacetyl or lactic acid like aroma. Hop aroma is weak. Good balance of caramel malt and hop flavor but finish is astringent. Medium body, a little bit high carbonation. They use Cascade hop but the style is closer to English Pale Ale.

3.93/5  rDev +12%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

The aroma initially expresses raisins and chocolate, followed by plum, alcohol, and toffee-like malt. The body is a little hazy and medium orange-brown in hue; the head is off-white. The flavor is fairly malty with bread and toffee; there is some fruitiness perhaps reminiscent of dried apricots; it's a tad boozy with moderate resiny and floral bitterness. It's medium-light in body with light carbonation and bite.

Not bad overall. The flavors and aromas seems to be in the right ballpark but stop short of being all-around excellent. The alcohol in the aroma and flavor could be better integrated.

A: Pours a hazy copper color with a decent head and some lacing.

S: Aroma of citrus and malt with some caramel sweetness. there is some fruit and grain in the background.

T: Taste of malt and citrus with some caramel sweetness. Again there is a bit of grain and fruit in the background. Has an easy bitterness and a clean finish.

F: Medium body, with some interesting character.

O: Nice pale ale, easy drinker which is good for a few.
