I was able to have a couple of these at Halseys in Geneva, NY. This is nice little restraint with a solid beer list.
Served in a standard pint, the beer is chill hazed bronze with a stick beige head.
Made with local hops guessing a C type as there is some pine in the nose.
Beer achieves a nice balance. It is slightly piney and lots of caramel malts. It is fresh with a bit of an earthy & floral finish.
The mouth could use a little heft, but I had no problem downing two and would have had more if I didn’t have to drive.
I can recommend both the beer and the restaurant!

On tap, into a standard pint at J. Ryan’s in Syracuse, NY
Appearance (3.5): One-finger head, fading to a thin film. Body is a clear, reddish amber, surprisingly deep hue, actually. Just a bit of thin lacing.
Smell (4.0): Mainly floral, some citrus in the mix. Malt smells toasted, but nothing roasty here. Modest, but good malt notes.
Taste (3.5): Floral and grassy hops come out first, and they mix evenly with the toasted malts, as opposed to feeling like they’re layered or come in waves. Classic bitterness. The malt body is not very sweet, but it supports the hop profile well enough. Good, bitter finish. Yeast is pretty neutral; no alcohol presence.
Mouthfeel (3.0): Prickly carb, fades relatively quickly. Light, slightly dry finish. Good, not great.
Overall (3.5): Decent. Could use less toastiness in the malt body, but that’s just me. I’d like to see more hop action in this, because I love wet / fresh hop beers—I personally think the toasted notes detract from the potential of the wet hops. Still, this was tasty and I’m glad to see more local, upstate breweries AND the use of fresh hops!
