  • Pours a medium amber brown color with a thin off-white head that quickly dissipates leaving a thin layer of foam resting on top. A fair amount of lacing.

    The aroma is light sweet malt aroma with a bit of floral hops.

    The taste starts with light sweet caramel malt, some dry bready malt flavors and moves to a dry floral hop on the finish. The aftertaste has hints of citrus and honey wrapped around a slightly bitter hop.

    Light to medium bodied with medium somewhat fizzy carbonation. Watery mouthfeel. Slightly dry on the finish.

    Overall an enjoyable beer. Not super complex, but a satisfying amber ale that is well balanced and has that little some thing extra that you don't find in a lot of the main stream beers of this style! Try one!
