Appearance: At first glance the beer has a golden haze to it, as it settles slightly it becomes clearer and more of an orange gold. When poured, it had a medium frothy head that lasted through a long period of sipping.
Aroma: A very aromatic beer, it has a bright, hoppy scent with a back end of fruitiness and spiciness.
Taste: Light and refreshing, yet there is a more complex end taste of a slight floral spice and a creaminess from a honey malt.
Mouthfeel: With a medium body, clear carbonation, and a creaminess from the honey malt, it leaves a refreshing crisp yet dry aftertaste.
Overall: This is a complex beer, one that may be for a more sophisticated, craft beer drinker. Although still easy to drink, the different notes can be hard to decipher. So for an avid camper, backpacker, hiker or any kind of adventurer, the bottles that Base Camp Brewing uses to bottle a large number of their beers allows for easier travels for lovers of craft beer. So grab a bottle and take it for an adventure and we’re sure you’ll enjoy it wherever your adventures take you!
