Can, poured into a 4oz sampling glass. Orange-toned, with a fluffy white head, not exceptionally long lasting. Nose is bready malts with not much in the way of a hop aroma. Taste is similar with a simple hop character, perhaps just Saaz? This is a pretty simple, straight forward beer, however I feel it could benefit from some stronger hop additions to balance out the malts.

Canned 2/10/15.

Pours a murky dark orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. A foamy lattice of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus juice, and perfume like aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus juice, black tea, and earth flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with interesting perfume and black tea aspects that I am getting.

Serving type: can.

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, golden, amber, color, with a finger and a half of white-colored head that dissolved away into a thin lacing of foam that completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Strong aromas of bready, toasted malt, imparting aromas of biscuits and freshly-baked sourdough bread. There are also aromas of caramel, black pepper and hits of orange peel. Quite nice.

Taste: Tasty! Lots of toasted malt up front, followed by some brown sugar and caramel-like sweetness, some spices of black pepper and thyme. Finally, the beer finishes with some pronounced, but, balanced, piney, slightly resin-like hops. It’s a very tasty beer.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, crisp and nicely effervescent as there’s quite a bit of carbonation to tickle the taste buds. With an ABV of 5.1%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is quite a tasty beer. Malty, bready, with hints of spice and sweetness, and easy to drink. A very nice beer. Looking forward to trying other Atlas Brew Works beers. Recommended.

Pours an orangey-amber with a nice creamy white head, that leaves just a smidge of lacing. The aroma is bready and earthy, as is the taste. The body is lightly carbonated with a little hops bite on the finish.
