Darker amber color with a thick beige one finger head with short retention and leaving some laces.
Malty and caramely aroma with undertones of citrusy hops. I was expecting something bolder.
Malty flavor with notes of mild citrusy hops, spices, grass, biscuit and toasted malts and cinnamon. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Medium body with appropriate carbo.
Balanced Pale Ale, not like an APA that is more like an IPA but with less body. It is maltier, but still bitter and spicer. They kept their original recipe, almost 20 years ago, and those were different times. That said it is not that tamed compared to old school.
