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

Appearance: Light copper and amber with golden hues. Good amount of white head that sticks around and to the side of the glass all the way down.

Smell: Very aromatic smells delicious, with both carmel malt and floral hops with spice note coming through, nice...

Taste: Sweet malt and caramel, with hop good flavour. Just enough bitterness that has a spice bite to it. Some sweetness to the finish but finishes dry with a good hop presence...

Overall: A very well crafted beer! Just enou hops but very well balanced. This has been popular for a long time for good reason, its a solid, well crafter brew!
