Perky flowery scents shine through a dense, honey like aroma. A soapy, uncarbonic mouthfeel carries the type of flavours you'd expect from smelling this mustard-colored brew; Flowers, honey and grainyness. The finish is neutral, but not without it's flaws - An out-of-style, out-of-balance buttery taste can easily be picked up on.

Pours an opaque saturated orange, a finger of foam, spotty lace in the glass.

Aroma isn't all that hoppy, floral with sandalwood traces, and specialty malt. Reminds me of a faded malty IPA.

Sweet with a faint bitterness in the aftertaste. Crystal malt bready caramel sweetness. Medium bodied with a soft carb level. Bready malt flavors dominate, some vague dried orange peel surfaces occasionally. Again, it's pretty malty with minimal hop character. Graham cracker aftertaste. Not especially impressed by this, just showed up and at $15 I'd hoped it would be relatively fresh.

Pours dark gold with a good white foam head. Some lace.

Some herbal notes and mild sweet fruit, tied to a hint of alcohol. The nose on this is nice, but not over-strong.

Good herbal hop presence, with some tropical fruit, but not much. A little creamy wood and a toasted malt bite. This one lays out the bitterness fairly full, but there are just enough nuances to this beer to smooth out the hop bite.

Medium bodied, well carbonated. A good tingle.

Shocked to see this bottled. Really nice and drinkable, with some good complexities.
