My first impression of this beer was that it tasted like a home brew. Not that I'm an expert, but it has a great malt taste with some yeasty qualities and a bit of sweetness with some earthy tones. It just seemed to me that this is what a talented brewer would brew in their kitchen for their own every day consumption. That was a couple of years ago, and I still enjoy revisiting it on occasion. It pleases many tastes and goes well with simple rustic foods.

Pours a coppery reddish color with ivory colored head. Caramel malt, some bread, yeast, and herbal tones on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with mostly malt.

Amber color, off white head, some lacing. Malty pilsner smell with some hop presence, stone fruit aromas from the yeast. Malty taste with slight farmhouse/brett character, funky without being barnyard or horsey, yeast provides some stone fruit qualities. Typical body, rather crisp finish. Would drink again.

Poured 12oz bottle into glass. Color is amber with a 2 finger khaki head. Decent retention and spotty lacing. Aroma is malty with a slight floral scent from noble hops. Flavor is on the sweeter maltier side with minimal hops. Not too exciting, but good flavor. Lighter body with nice carbonation. Simple beer that I would like some oak or must in along with the hops. .

Wasn't expecting this to be half as delicious as it was. Fruity, crisp and delicious sweet aftertaste - very reminiscent of a wine, actually. I'm not a big wine drinker, so this was like wine improved for me! "Great burp" like someone else said, haha! I'm normally in pursuit of syrupy coffee, chocolatey stouts yet this ale packed a great punch AND was easy to finish with a (bbq) meal. Looking forward to trying this out of the bottle.

Poured into an IPA glass.
A - Pours a dark clear amber color with a small head.
S - The aroma is caramel.
T - The flavor is malty.
M - The mouth feel is medium as is the carbonation.
O - I was expecting something different. Maybe a little funky or tart, maybe grassy, maybe more of a Belgian yeast flavor. This turned out to be a fine beer but nothing out of the ordinary. Went perfectly well with my curried chicken. Not a beer I would seek out.
