Pours clear with a half glass of full, off-white foam. Retention is about average with the foam seeping back to level quite quickly with each sip.
Aroma is malt forward with sweet malt being foremost, bread too. Citrus and floral scents follow along with a honey.
Taste is similar malt profile of sweet and slight bread. End has some citrus bite to it. The middle has a note that carries into the finish and last, almost taking over, but I don't know what it is (jasmine?).
Light body, maybe medium at best. Medium carbonation.
Interesting beer as I think the jasmine was the "different" flavor and aroma I was getting. Unbalanced as I don't know if everything sets up well together. Enjoy!

This mysterious ale calls upon centuries of brewing and human intrigue with natural herbs. In days gone by, these beers were conjured up for many reasons and occasions. Folks consumed various natural herbs in many forms, and beer was one. It was thought that these herbs had qualities that complement everyday life. Today's connoisseur is finding that a swing back to the way it used to be is a natural cycle of life. Some of our modern ways could use a little tweaking and taking a step back into the world of Herbs is a great way to start. Enjoy this amber ale with nice malt sweetness and just a hint of Jasmine and hops.
