New Hampshire

3.9/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle stamped 03JAN14-BF51. Sampled on May 21, 2014.

Despite being five months old it still pours nice with its amber-copper color and long lasting cream colored head. There is a lot of lacing left behind.

There are floral and pine hops on the nose but they are not in my face. That could be due to the age. The toasted biscuit malt character is fairly noticeable.

The body is light to medium and this is very easy to quaff.

The floral hops lend themselves more to the taste with the toasted bready and biscuit malt character balancing it out. But the hops linger along with the moderately dry finish.
