poured from bottle into a pint glass

a: really nice light amber/dark honey color. light head with better than average lacing.

s: whew... that smells like beer! not a lot of complexity o the nose for me... just hop sauce...

t: wow, there's a lot going on! starts out really sweet with honey and fleshy fruit but transitions into a soft bitter peach pit that lingers for a while with some other magic going on in between... almost like a camp fire... maybe there's something wrong with my nose cause I don't see how none of these crazy flavores are coming out in the smell? nice beer!

mf: light carbonation, taste lingers for a little longer than i prefer. A feels a little thin but tastes thick (if that makes any sense). Not a bad thing... actually kind of interesting sensation.

I can see this being a frequent evening after work beer for when I only plan to have 1 or 2.
