Pours golden amber with a good lazy head of foam. Off white. Bright clarity lots of bubbles floating upwards. Nose is sweet malt and brown sugar. Orange. Taste is brisk sweet and kissed by a rich depth. Finishes dry and with an alluring bitter. Medium mouthfeel.

12 oz. bottle poured into a Union 2nd Anniversary glass

A: Beautiful deep brown that is still able to be seen through. Nice strong head that leaves some nice lacing.
S: Excellent sweet malt flavors that are perfectly mixed with a pine hop flavor
T: Deliciously malty with a nice subtle bit of hoppiness to it.
M: Nice even bit of light carbonation.
O: Great beer at a great price with a nice ABV. This one will keep nicely.
