Acquired this from gramatton so a big THANK YOU goes out to him!

A: This beer pours a hazy orange color with two finger of white creamy head. Head retains nicely leaving a thick coating of sticky lacing.

S: Nose is of pale malts, grain, touch of citrus and floral hops.

T: Taste starts with a bit of lemon citrus hops. Malt character quickly takes over - pale malts, grain and a hint of biscuit fill through the middle. Finish then has a fruity nature of some apple and banana in the finish coupled with a hint of floral hops.

M: Light body, medium carbonation, with a light but creamy feeling on the tongue.

D: Well balanced, nicely blended, decent representation of style, goes down very easy and definitely one to sit with for a while.

Thanks to tsatem for this!

A - Murky and cloudy amber/yellow. Thick white head with huge bubbles vanishes before my eyes.

S - lemon, black pepper, tomato, sweet malt.

T - Clean and crisp malt, some vanilla, touch of lemony zest.

M - smooth and creamy, quite light. A touch drying.

D - well this is very drinkable. tastes pretty good, pleasant, and not heavy.
