Sampled back on 1/14/16 with a good friend. Comes in a single "1 pint, 6 ounce" (650ml) nice looking bottle with a painted-on label for around $5.99. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a .5L handled-glass stein.

Brew pours a medium-amber in color with a good 1+-finger foamy off-white head. Lots of lacing is seen when sipped that stuck to the sides of the glass when sipped. Aroma is of bready yeasts, caramel malts with a hint of citrus. Taste is close to the nose with some brown sugar and floral hops also. Does have a slightly bitter finish but doesn't last too long. Crisp and clean. Medium-bodied with decent carbonation. Overall it was decent.

750ml bottle poured into a pint.

a: Standand amber ale color of, well...amber. A brilliant, juicy hazy body with a minimal one finger white head.

s: Caramel and apple, floral notes from the hops.

t:Grainy dry malts, earthy and floral hops. Grapefruit rind in the finish.

mf: Medium, dry body with good carbonation.

o: Taste didn't follow the nose in this beer. Not bad, but not great.

Tasty American ale, and not overly hopped. Mildly bitter, pours a dark copper colo writh faint head and lots of lacing. Very enjoyable if you don’t like a lot of hops.

Undated bottle into pint glass. Poured a cloudy amber with a HUGE off-white head. Very smooth, though - bready yeasts and well balanced roasted malt and hops. Slightly bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel. Not sure this is one that I would revisit frequently - nothing really stands out.

Draft into a pint glass. Slightly cloudy reddish gold color. A reasonable head and good lacing. Nice Amber taste, a bit malty, bready with some orange flavor. A pretty good beer.

Cloudy amber, brownish. Tan head
Smell of citrus. Toast. Bread crust. Pine. Taste is the same. Pretty hoppy.
Feel is frothy. Semi light.

Would drink if handed.

Look - As expected Amber in color. Nice rich color.

Smell - Toasty and crisp. Not too much else.

Taste - Toasty with a very slight citrus undertone. As you swallow you can taste more of the citrus come to the front as the sweeter almost brown sugar taste fades.

Mouthfeel: Very easy to drink. Carbonation is decent, not overpowering, not too little. Good balance. Smooth finish without much aftertaste lingering.

Overall - Extremely easy drinking. A great beer to relax with. I wish it was available more often in my area. I would love to have more of these.

12 oz bottle.

Pours a deep copper color with a large, durable, creamy, bone-colored head.

Aroma: hops and malts in about equal measure.

Flavor: Sweet and medium roasted malts dominate all the way through to the finish. Excellent, near even, sweet-bitter balance.
