Pours a copper color with coarse bubbles rising and atop the beer. Excellent clarity.

Musty hops, sweet toasted grains, mild apple aroma, and cream. Lightly raisiny. Not too showy.

Snappy hops upfront. Earthy and spicy with generous toastiness. Malts are rigidly bitter and grainy. Quenching feel. Sudsy with a bristly finish that carries through some backend heat. Body is smooth enough. 11.2 ounces is a small sample for what I'd like to have in front of me. Toss me two more bottles and a stein!

Copper. Sort of malty and bready but not with the body I'd expect from the style.
