A wonderful slightly creamy honey ale. Carmel notes and a hint of orange. This is what I like to call a relaxed beer not to filling and hits the spot. A foggyesque medium amber. A 1+in head goes away quickly on a heavy pour. Fills full bodied and is a overall wonderful beer will buy again for sure.

Nice copper color decent head and retention. Flavor was a solid ale. Overall, it’s a good beer but nothing to write home about.

A: Poured a one finger head, burnt orange in color, nice lacing

S: Wheaty, malty, honey, slight nuttiness, maybe pine nuts.

F: Medium mouth-feel

T: A good mix of honey, malt and hops, but then the wheaty malts completely take over and linger for quite some time. Alcohol is present, but is largely hidden well.

O: Poured from a can. Easy to drink, but perhaps too malty. Single note beer, but it's a good note.

-deep amber can pour with little visible carbonation. Aroma is of sweet malt and an apple note. The flavor includes caramel and honey with a light hop spice. The flavor is rich. The body is pretty light.

Canned 3/5/18, consumed 4/29/18

I really liked the taste of this beer. Not sure how representative it is of a lager style considering that it's an ale.

Look wasn't great, basically looks exactly like apple juice with a tiny head an no lacing at all anywhere.

Aroma is a bit like caramel apples honestly. Really, really sweet.

Taste is a lot better, more toasted, bready malts to balance the fruity sweetness. They really nailed it here.

Feel is pretty light for the ABV, easy, good bitterness to balance the sweetness.

Very well done all around. A uniquely-styled ale. Will be picking more up for sure.
