Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, amber-copper coloring, with a halo of white head. Nose of sugar sweetness, caramel notes, and a solid roasted character. Flavors have a tangy fruit sweetness forward, with apricot, ginger, and pineapple in the blend. Roasted and sugary backbone. Light and smooth bodied, with a sugary sweet aftertaste. The finish is smooth, with a solid linger. Tasty brew.

On draft at the brewery.

Poured a medium amber hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured an earthy carel malt couple with a cleansing herbal hop.

The taste consisted of spicy and tdiasty caramel malts complimented by a utilitarian noble hop.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a tasty and well balanced alt.
