12 oz. bottle. 5.27% abv and 27 IBUs.

Pours a clear, clean, rich copper. Finger of light beige head. Some lacing. Decent mix of hops and malt on the nose. In fact, this seems a little hoppier than most examples. Still, there is some cookie-ish malt to contrast with the herbal, slightly citrusy hops.

Crisp toasted grain up front. Soon changes over to caramel and cookie dough sweetness. Herbal, spicy hoppiness comes in mid-palate to contrast with the malts. Some cooked vegetables as we near the finish. Lingering graham cracker and caramel. Medium-bodied, with a slightly slick feel. A nice, tasty O-fest!

A - Pale Gold Color with a barely visable thin head.

S - Has a toasty malt aroma with a spicy hop aroma.

T - Clean, Crisp malt flavor with a sharp hop bitterness.

M - light bodied.

O - A decent beer. Definitely not one of my favorites. Probably wouldn't buy it again, but glad I tried it.

A: Clear, nice head that eventually becomes a really good lacing. Clear golden color.

S: Grains, hops, bread

T: Apples/pears. Slightly cidery. Grains. Bread.

M: Malty. Smooth. Easy to drink.

Overall: Decent beer. Easy to drink, but it seems a little too fruity for me.

On tap at the brewery.

A: Light copper in color, slight orange hue. Served to me with just a thin cap that dissipates in a hurry. Zero lacing.
S: Lots of graininess, slight grassy hop. One note.
T: More sweet grains, very slight hoppy finish.
M: Medium mouthfeel, dry finish.
O: Average, could use more of a full flavor, especially more carmal malt IMO.
