look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Dark amber with an average amount of white head and lace.

Smell: A malty aroma with biscuit tones but the hop presence in the smell can’t be denied.

Taste: Herbal and floral like hops with that biscuit malt taste that seems to be a mainstay in their beers. Don’t get me wrong that is a quality that I admire in a beer. There is some roasted caramel to it as well.

Mouthfeel: I would say light with some bite.

Overall: I enjoyed it and I would definitely get it on tap again.

A – Deep, jeweled amber body. Nice off-white head with nice lace and ok rentetion.

S – Brown sugar, toffee, and soft caramel malt manage to share the stage without rendering the nose overly sweet.

T – Smooth with a pleasantly heavy-handed dose of caramel malt backed by a resiny bitter backbone. Lightly dry finish.

M – Surprisingly refreshing for the amount of flavor in the profile. Medium full body.

O – A stellar session brew. The flavor profile is simple and clean, but well defined and delicious.
