This beer pours a clear light amber with a thin white head and sting laceing.
The nose is a high malt note with gentle orange zest, hopps, faintest note of little melted butter and mild peanut powder.
Palate is light with a light to moderate carbonation that is barely notasable
The flavor of this beer are initially bitter with the malt and barley forword and a dry earthy note that is very pronounced. There is a caramel maltiness note that is present after the first few sips and continues through out the beer. There is a strong peat after taste that leves your mouth dry
It’s a light citrus fresh ale with an earthy hop that threatens to over-balance but just holds on.
