look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Clear copper with slight frothy tan-ish head. Plenty of carbonation. Little retention - just a film on top. Some very slight patchy lacing. Some sediment

Smells sweet amd bready. Hints of dark fruits among bready caramel malts. Some earthy grassy notes in the background

Taste follows the nose. Lots of bready malts and sweet fruits and caramel. A bit nutty. Somewhere towards the middle some grassy hops introduce themselves but never assert any real bitterness. The finish is sweet and slightly floral with a grassy aftertaste

Feels smooth. On the lighter side of medium-bodied. Very easy drinking. Clean

A very nice ale overall. Well-made and fairly well-balanced but leaning towards the sweet side. Would definitely get again if I was in the mood for a good ale. Honestly a little surprised when I looked at the ABV. Drinks like nothing
