Pours from the bottle light amber with a 1/2 inch head and lots of lacing!
Smells of malts and bicuits. Taste is bicuity and a nice smooth malt and touch of hops. A very smooth drinkable beer.
Light and refreshing in your mouth
I give it a 4.0 overall, it is a very nice beer.
Thanks to Jason from Epps Beverages for the bottle of this.

12 oz. Bottle

Pours a pretty nice amber color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy/foamy white head, which leaves some sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, citrus. The taste is hoppy, malty, citrusy. Medium body. Overall, a pretty tasty brew.

Had on-tap at Buffalo Wild Wings on 290 and Spring Cypress, Houston, TX

Served in a 23oz pilsner glass.

Appearance: Light amber color with a medium white head that leaves quickly, leaving a thick foam floating and around the edge of the glass.

Smell: Sweet, buttery malt with floral hops.

Taste: Starts off sweet and slightly toasty, finishing with a stronger buttered toast flavor and herbal hop notes. Slight hints of apples in the finish as well.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with balanced carbonation and a crisp, slightly dry finish.

Drinkability: Solid all-round, flavorful, sessionable, and overall damn drinkable.
