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.

DATE REVIEWED: May 24, 2014... GLASSWARE: Howard's Pub pint... OCCASION: a holdover from the last poker night... APPEARANCE: dark amber body that is lively and slightly opaque; off-white head is mostly creamy with a bit of rocky space; good open lacing... AROMA: sharp caramel malts with enough metallic clank to disturb the doughy biscuit that settles... PALATE: smooth yet slightly warm; mellow, swift and too light to hold attention... TASTE: nutty and caramel with the sweetness near to lip-smacking; hops are in check and not distinguishable... OVERALLL: serviceable and sessionable, but not a six-pack I'd seek to revisit; rather straightforward and predictable, with only the comfort factor working in its favor....
