Can is 5.7%abv slightly higher than stated above.

Apearance is quite dark amber,semi-transparent with a nice white head.

The smell is pretty faint, some earthy tones.

The taste is bread, biscuit, earth and grains.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. The finish is crisp and refreshing.

Overall not bad but boring, glad I only picked up a single can.

Smells citrusy, but there is a little armpit-like twinge in there, as if it were a touch stale. Thiis the only turn off of this brew. Beer is well filtered which yields a handsome tangerine/burnt orange color. Flavor is rather malty, with hops mostly for flavor and not hitting too hard with bitterness. Slight citrus in the finish, but mostly a sweet, balanced malt flavor throughout. A touch biscuity. Goes down smooth, but never lacking in flavor. Not a big excitement, but incredibly pleasant.

Big thanks to Cuzco for sending this beer to me. The beer was chilled and served in an Imperial Pint glass.

Appearance: The body of the beer has a bright coppery coloration. The head is thick white but fails the mustache test. Nice webs of lacing mark this beers quick passage from my glass.

Smell: Nice caramel malt leads the aroma. Then the next wave of aroma goes to citric hops. Very nicely done.

Taste: The beers flavor leads with a slightly toasted caramel maltyness. The sweetness is put in check by grapefruit hops. The hops and malts ebb and flow very nicely done.

Mouthfeel / Drinkability: The body of the beer is light very gentle on the carbonation. This is a very satisfying throw back beer that I would revisit frequently if it was available in cincinnati.
