12 oz brown stubby, no freshness date but the neck label has the year 2006 on it.
A- Hard three fingers of foam from a vigorous pour, sea foam crust latches on to the inside of the glass. Shiny pale copper hue.
S- A mix of fruity and citric children's vitamins or PEZ in the nose. Coarse hop aroma.
T&M- Sharp bitterness from the hops; herbal, stale tobacco. Graininess has a horse feed like quality. Medium body, crisp and smooth enough to get by. Touch of malt sweetness gets lost quick. Finishes with a harsh herbal hop.
D- This one just seems out of whack to me, the back-end is too clean and the graininess and hop bitterness runs amok.
