Just me, myself and my beer in the taproom. Football on the TV's and around 20 to 25 people enjoying the different offerings from the taproom.
Beer was served in a standard pint glass.
Aroma: Slight malty aroma, sweet floral character with more fruity esters as it warms up. Little to no hop aroma.
Look (Appearance): Copper color with white head that faded somewhat quickly. Very good clarity with good lacing.
Taste: Soft smooth malt flavor. Medium dry with low phenols even for a beer above its target abv. Small hop bite in the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium light body with appropriate carbonation. The first few sips are peppery across the tongue
Second Look (Overall Impression): Easily drinkable well balanced beer. Alcohol is a little to high to be a session beer (its traditional role), but still a good example of style. The beer should be given a short time to warm up to get the full makeup of this beer.
