  • Pours a Dark Amber brown with a hint of red. Nice think foamy head that dissolves quickly, but leaves lots of nice lacing.

    Aroma is mostly Nut and Carmel and pine hops.

    Taste is similar to the aroma with lots of nut and caramel malt and finishes with a mellow pine hop that gives it a bitterness at the end.

    Medium body with medium carbonation. Creamy and smooth.

    Overall an enjoyable beer with a nice complexity that keeps it tasty and interesting.

  • Pours clear with a finger of off-white, thick foam. Head quickly disappears but there is some good lacing.

    Aroma is of sweet malt, bread, caramel, slight nuttiness, and citrus hops. Nice blend for the nose.

    The flavor starts out with sweet, caramel malt followed by a little nuttiness and bread. The end is all citrus hops. It is a blast of hops that finishes with some bitterness that quickly dissipates on the palate.

    Medium carbonation and body, this beer seems to be a good brown ale with some hops for added flavor and aroma. They hit the style dead on.

    A refreshing and crisp beer that is easily enjoyed on another beautiful summer day (in the shade for me). A beer that I could have many times in a sitting or enjoy a few to quench the thirst after work. Enjoy!
