A - Pours a nice golden copper brown, thin layer of beige head, good retention, which settles into small islands leaving a nice amount of lacing.

S - The hops are mild, but nicely balanced with bready barley and some caramel and honey.

T - Hops are noticeable off the top, but it finishes with a nice bready malt. Sweet caramels also come through to balance it out.

M - Nice light, bubbly and smooth ale. It's bitter, but does not finish dry, making for a nicely balanced beer.

D - Very pleased with this offering. Nothing mind blowing, but was definitely a full flavoured ale with many admirable characteristics. I wish I had access to 6-ers of this in Alberta, as this would be a lovely sessionable beer.
