Served in straight pint glass. Poured a clean, clear brownish amber color with just a thin cap of tan head that had low retention and good lacing.

The aroma was mostly sweet malts, none of the peatiness that I look for in the style. The story is the same on the tongue, mostly sweet malt, a tickle of hops and no spice or peat.

The body was good, smooth and tongue coating, but was perhaps a bit to smooth for the style. Drinkability was good, but with most of the typical features on the subdued side, why not have something different?

Overall, a bit of a disappointment from a favorite local brewery. Worth trying if you're on the way down from Mt. Baker.
