Best by 3/19/13 printed on bottle, poured into a pint glass.

Appearance - Poured a crystal clear copper color with one finger of lasting off-white head. Excellent lacing.

Smell - Bready malt forwardness with a nice floral hop backbone.

Taste - Slight breadiness with excellent hop bitterness. Just enough hops to balance the malt.

Mouthfeel - Medium to medium-high carbonation with medium mouthfeel.

Overall - Very enjoyable session beer. One of the more balanced beers I have had in a long time (I'm a hophead). This will definitely be added to my session beer go-to list.

Bottle opened on 1.11.13.

A - Pours a clear amber-orange with a very thin light tan head that fades quickly to the edges.

S - Malty, biscuity, sweet fruit.

T - Malty, orange, bready. No hops?

D - Decent carbonation with a medium body.

O - Malty and bready. Not much of a hop presence.
