22oz bottle poured in to a chalice glass

A- pours a bright golden amber color with a small creamy white head that retains long after the pour, leaving some sticky lacing behind

S- smells very much like an English pale ale; tons of biscuit malt with some caramel & bready sweetness, underlying grassy, floral & citrus hops

T- taste follows the nose, lots of biscuit malt with some caramel and toasted notes, grassy and floral hop compliments the malt, with hints of citrus closing it out , more biscuit malt on the linger

M- medium body with moderate-low carbonation leads to a creamy mouthfeel that stays strong all the way to a chewy creamy finish, classic Alpine mouthfeel

O- quite different from the typical pale ale, but super drinkable and very enjoyable
