Pours orangey-amber with a thick cap of foamy off-white head. There is great retention and soapy small lacing. The aroma is mild, slightly citrus-y hops and grains. The taste is about the same. It has a medium light body, with a moderate amount of carbonation and a drier finish.

L: Pours bright gold amber from a 22 oz bottle into a Libbey craft pub glass producing a moderately persistent 1” off-white foam cap.

S: It starts with nice biscuit and caramel aromas but then I start getting a garlicky onion aroma from the hops. I have had this before and not noticed this.

T: Starts with bread crumb and light caramel and then stone fruit, herbs, earthiness leading to a moderate hop bitterness in the finish. More orange flavors come through as it warms.

F: Very effervescent, medium body.

O: I don’t know where the onion garlic aromas came from but overlooking that, the beer drinks well and has nice flavor.
