A-pours a fairly clear copper/amber color with an off white head with average retention
S-caramel, some biscuit, herbal hop aroma
T-more carmel and biscuit, with herbal hop bitterness following and citrus notes. kind of a weird combo
M-medium bodied with average retention
O-not a horrible beer, but not the flavors I would look for in this style of a beer. maybe a bit too much citrus and not enough malty ready flavors

Amber color with thin lace. Green apple aroma and taste as well as some toasted malts. Slightly hoppy. The best way for me to describe this brew is clean in aroma and taste. However, I would have liked it to be more flavorful. It wasn't bad, but certainly not memorable.

The beer offers caramel sweetness up front, although reasonably restrained while still showing itself as an amber. Then onto herbal, grapefruit, citrus peel and the beer low bitterness and flavor in general.
