12 oz. brown bottle.

A: Pours a clear copper color with a large foamy white head. Pretty good retention
and lacing.

S: Sweet malts and some dry floral hops. Overall pretty clean and crisp.

T/M: Starts with sweet malts and light floral hops. Good balance, might be a little
malt heavy. Chewy caramel, medium bodied with an easy crisp feel and a dry hoppy
aftertaste.

O: Not much to say other than it is a good ale. Tastes more like a British Pale Ale, than
an American one. Easy to drink but with little standing out in the taste. Still enjoyable,
but nothing I'd get again.

Cheers!

12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours clear with an apropos copper hued and a medium-small, receding, white head.

Smell: Honey nut, toasted grain-flecked bread, faintest light brown sugar. Hops throw off some modest notes of citrus peel, mild resin and a light grassiness.

Taste: Malts tasting of toasted grain, toasted bread with a light whisper of brown sugar and honey sweetness. Lightly nutty. Zesty, slightly grassy hops with enough bitterness to balance it out. Drying finish, with a lingering, gentle fruitiness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation with a pleasant, sudsy texture to it.

Overall: An easy-drinking ale, not overly hoppy nor particularly malty.

Beer looks really nice. Malty earthy nose. Pretty bitter on the profile. Kind of mellow, with a bit of a bite on the back. Carbonation is quite aggressive and strikes the tongue quite a bit. A pretty standard kind of pale ale that doesn't really stand out but is well made.
