This one pours a nice umber color that has an off white head that settles at a moderate rate with virtually no lacing down the glass.

The nose is peppery malt that is sweet and pleasant with fruity notes that have hints of apples, melon and a tinge of hops.

The taste is nice rich malt that is dryer than the nose with a nice peppery hops taste that starts fresh and grassy then fades to a peppery tinge and a clean bitter finish.

The moutfeel is just right and is adequately rich for this style.

Overall this one is extremely drinkable and better than the sum of it's parts. This is a highly drinkable and excellent beer. You should definitely drink this one.
