I had a sample glass at the brewery, nice amber color with a good malty smell. The taste was great malts with a nice sweetness to the flavor. It was my favorite of the ones I tried there.

Appearance is rich gold with white cap and decent lacing.

Aroma carries a scent of fresh bread and something like clean green melon.

Taste is a combination of the aromas and is malt dominant leaning toward dryness. It feels rich without any taste of sweet. Hop presence is enough to balance the malt but no more. A bit of richer malt in the aftertaste which follows a short, clean finish. The brewers told me their goal was to create a flavorful food friendly ale and in that they succeeded. Quite popular in the local restaurants and with local customers generally.

Texture is just past medium.

Overall this strikes me as truth in packaging. Brewer's description on the label is a single hop session ale brewed in the style of a mild English Pub Ale and that's what it is. Just a few flavors working harmoniously together make it more than simple but not complex. Designed as a food ale (3.76%) to complement rather than dominate a dish. I've paired it with diverse things from pot roast to spicy crawfish and it works admirably. A real all rounder and very easy to drink.

Poured from a growler to a pint glass

A: Light amber with an off-white, one-finger head that dissipates to big bubbles. Decent lacing.

S: Malts and honey dominate.

T: Very smooth and light tasting. Malty with a hint of honey. Hops pop in for a dry finish. Would be great with burgers or spicy foods.

M: Light to medium. Low to medium carbonation. Frothing on the tongue.

O: Very sessionable. Another great entry from Lucky Town.
