Notes / Commercial Description:

On tap at a local MN beer bar.

Look - rich amber color, limited head, but strong lacing

Smell - fresh smell, freshly cut grass, some floral notes of lavender

Taste - sweet malty flavor, good bite of bitterness

Feel - medium bodied, crisp refreshing carbonation, lingering (but appealing) bitter flavor

Overall - solid representation of an American pale ale

Carmel colored body, almost too dark for a pale ale, quickly dissapating head that left very nice lacing around the glass. Nose was nicely balanced between fruity, citrus hops and toasty sweet malt. Great mouthfeel with medium body and carbonation; the taste follows the nose with sweetness from caramel malts, biscuity nutty flavor, lightly roasted malts, hop flavor is floral forward and floral/fruity back. A tasty and satisfying ale that is a cross between a pale and amber, color and flavor wise.
