22 oz, poured into sam adams glass
Beautiful gold/caramel color. Not often impressed by appearance, but was with this one.
Smell seems somewhat lacking. I'm not picking up much at all but a bit of sweet malt.
Taste is good, with nice malty flavor, touches of caramel, bit of vanilla. Starts to feel like it might get a bit too sweet, but then that sweetness gets smacked down by the hops right at the end. very well balanced.
Mouthfeel is smooth, with a nice level of carbonation that seems to lift the heavy malt flavors right off the tongue.
Overall, very drinkable without being too heavy. Even on a 90 degree day, this was very nice.
Serving type: bottle
