Pours hazy dark straw/orange with a 2 finger off-white head. Excellent retention and good lacing.

Aroma features light caramel malts balanced by some earthy hops. Fairly simple bill, but smells balanced.

About the same on the flavor front. Starts out with some big maltiness before the earthy hops hit to pull the balance back toward the middle. Ends up finishing a touch on the dryer side.

Smooth creamy mouthfeel. Carbonation a touch on the low side.

Not a style I usually reach for, but once again a well craft to style representation. Nice simple malt and hop bill with the mouthfeel pulling everything together.
