Notes:

Second tasting, good light tan head, clear amber color, not much aroma. Flavor, Malty, cracker, with floral, herbal hops, finishes with a peppery, slightly Smokey flavor. Very smooth, good mouthfeel, extremely drinkable. Need to brew this again!

Notes:

Clear amber with nice tan head that lingers. Smokey aroma on first pour which fades into background and then the floral, herbal Loral hop character dominates the flavor, with a sweet, malty backbone. Very complex flavor, nicely balanced.
