My first brew from the Alesmith line, and I like what I see so far. A good clear copper amber with nice head, the alesmith has been working hard. Oh, the aroma is ga-good. I detect the floral hops wonderfully, but a good presence of the malts, hints of caramel. Mercy, a good flavor as well, perhaps I should start my training as an alesmith. The hop bite is balanced so well by the malt presence and those tiny little bubbles that you read about on the bottle. Those little bubbles make the beer feel great in your mouth. I will be getting this again.
