Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Lighter brown color with a thin beige head that lingered. No lacing on the glass.

Smell: Hops and malts with nutty notes.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Taste of malts with bitter hops, very bitter aftertaste.

Overall: Not a bad beer. Would not go out my way to buy another.

First time re-visting this beer in a long time - an early craft brew that I drank quite a bit of in the 90's. Served in a nonic. Pours a copper hue with a slight haze. Head quickly dissipates into a band around the edges and a soapy froth across the center. Nose expresses toasted malt with a little biscuit and a hint of sweetness. Taste consistent with nose with a slight metallic quality. Mouthfeel is light-medium with a crisp carbonation. Overall, an exemplar of the style, particularly from the American craft market.
