A craft beer classic, ashamed to admit I just finally tried it.

Appearance: Pours a medium amber with a thin white head that fades quickly, not too much lacing on my glass.

Smell: Malty sweetness with hints of caramel, some earthy notes, and hint of citrus.

Taste: Malt forward for sure, I get the caramel and some pine, and a bit of oak. A hint of citrus fruit comes through as well.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a solid creamy texture and good carbonation. A good easy drinking beer.

Overall: This is a good beer, not one I want to drink all the time but great for what it is.
