[Suggested Glassware: Nonic Pint]

The pour was a cloudy medium chestnut brown with an average (1-2 finger) light cream colored rocky head that diminished at a normal pace, down to a medium wispy film and collar and had decent spotty lacing.

The aroma was a tad mild with a light bread malt, herbal hops and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of citrus (grapefruit), caramel, brown sugar, a light fruity ester and a mild nuttiness.

The taste was very similar to the aroma starting off with a light sweet maltiness along with a hint of caramel and a light fruity presence at first, then a light hoppiness crept in with a touch of citrus all leading up to a nice mildly bitter nutty finish. The flavor lingered on the taste buds for an average time following the swallow, with a bitter fruity nutty taste left behind.

Mouthfeel was a bit beyond light in body with a somewhat dry texture and an almost medium carbonation.

Overall this was a decent enough brew, with a nice fruity sweetness that eventually gives way to a mild nutty bitterness at the end. Making this a rather tasty and enjoyable drinking experience...
