Poured into snifter

A Dark amber, no transparency. Half inch white head remains. Thick lacing.

S Hops. Wet grass. Some rye and wheat are there for sure. Malty. Very refreshing.

T Earthy and grainy upfront. The rye and wheat really come through. Bitter hoppiness follows.

M Its thin, but so are most pales. Bitter follow-through.

O Good APA. Nothing special. But that's kinda how the style is. Either it's great and people are bitching that it should be classified "IPA" or its a bland run-o-the mill ale. This sits somewhere in between. Try it. You won't hate it.

Pours an ambery copper color with a thin finger of off-white foam.

Toasted and caramel malts with a slight earthy/herbal hop aroma.

Toast, biscuits, caramel, and earthy hop bitterness.

Light-bodied, medium carbonation, leans sweet.

Overall, a rather forgettable beer.
