BB 4/18/18, consumed 1/20/18.

Poured clear amber with a very minimal head.

Aroma is bread, grains, floral - light and sweet.

Taste is bready, malt-forward, some spices and earthy hops.

Mouthfeel is medium, bitterness is not heavy but lingers slightly.

Totally different than a lot of the fruity-focused pale ales and IPAs out there these days. Definitely more of an old school pick.
