On tap at the brewery. Deep orange, clear body. Smells of bready malt, a hint of caramel, and a touch of citrus. Not the most aromatic. Tastes a little more interesting. Bready, fruity, and a bit of caramel malt. Tastes like an English pale ale. Faint bit of citrus and a touch of bitterness. Medium body. It’s not bad, but it isn’t what I expected or really what I wanted to drink based on the description.

Aroma is the best part here with a perfume, slight hop approach. Flavor is mostly bitter, slight hop flavor, fairly dry. Body is a touch thin. Has a lingering unpleasant bitter finish..

12 oz bottle into an Irish pub-style imperial pint glass. Hazy amber color, lightly carbonated. 1/2 inch off-white head, receding leaving thick lacing behind. Malty, bready aroma plus some grassy hops. The initial taste has a nice malt backbone; the bitterness of the hops comes quickly, but not too strongly. The hops do not assert themselves strongly in the taste, but there is some flowery or faintly citrusy flavor with not a lot of bitterness. The finish has more bitterness, but even so, you don't get dominate malt breadiness or sweetness, either. The finish has a little malty sweetness with a bit more hops bitterness. Sorry if I'm sounding repetitious; the flavor in this beer is kind of subdued. This is a pleasant enough beer, and easily drinkable, but don't expect to be overwhelmed by any particular aspect of it. This is a great beer for a gateway to craft.
