Creamy off white head falls quickly even in the storm of carbonation but leaves some lacing along the way leaving a respectable 1/8" + layer at the top of the glass. Color is vibrant orange with reddish/copper highlights.
Aroma is full of malty lager notes, but with layers of subtle hidden esters deep beneath. Clean, light bready malts along with sweet citrus, old dry cedar and a wiff of smoke come forward. In the distant background are caramel malts and even coffee and chocolate.
Taste is an interplay of hop bitterness, alcohol and the lager-like clean lighter malts while a game of "keep away" happens in the background with the hidden darker malt and fruity notes. The smoke chimes in again.
Body is medium light to medium. There is a slight buttery quailty that has always been here. It's been a long time, what a great beer. Why do I forget some of these greats?

11/09/11 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Far better on tap than from bottle. Bordering on the crisp side. Hops are well under control and there is a slight apricot in the sweetness. In a word, a classy glass...Oops, that was two words, but you get my drift.
