Just barely an APA. Pours a pretty amber. Mellow taste. Some might call it bland, but it has a sweet honey malt. It might be a good first draft beer for someone who usually drinks Michelob. I wouldn't turn it down, and I wouldn't go looking for it.

A gold beer poured for me at a small coffee/beer joint in downtown Knoxville. It smells, sadly, like Pinesol. That is, the pine elements in the aroma of this beer are overpowering. The mouthfeel is, however, light and refreshing. It tastes piney, but not overbearingly so. The bitterness of the malts certainly comes through, and my tongue picks up a strong salty flavor. I need to try more APA's, before I can properly give a true fair assessment of this beer. However, as my tastes and beer experience currently stands, I have to rate this beer as slightly below average. The smell is too strongly pine, and the taste is only mildy okay (but perhaps this is just a matter of me experiencing more APAs). Overall, I have a feeling it is a fine example of it's kind, but I don't currently look at it in a very favorable light.

Communion wafer taste with a hoppy nose, this would make a good session drink. Pear and honey, some citrus in there too. Goes down easy, but i prefer other Highland brews personally.

Good malt profile and some nice hop flavoring. Lots of cascade and possible EKG on some marris otter?
