On-tap 11/6/2016 at Flynn’s in Mansfield, MA, served in a tapered pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep amber color, with a thin off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains grain, honey, fruit, caramelized malts and a good amount of hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with strong flavors of lager yeast and a hearty but not too heavy malt character followed by some mildly sweet flavors of caramel, fruit and honey. The hops presence is decent for the style and provides a very good balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, decent kick, very good representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a long time.

A - Pours a hazed orange color with two fingers of foamy white head, moderate lacing.
S - Definitely get a lot of pilsner and vienna malt aroma, a light bready tone to it, a touch of dark fruit, and some mild earthy hops.
T - Taste is rather good, the lots of bread and biscuit malt coming through, a touch of sweetness, then some light bitterness.
M - I like the feel the best, a slight creamy texture, but a touch tart and bitter on either side, very balanced.
O - Im actually fairly impressed with this compared to their IPA. Good Autumn drinker for sure.
