Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint glass.
A: Clear, light amber color with less than one finger of eggshell-tinted foam head. Medium lacing remains on the glass.
S: Resin-laced caramel, restrained bread, slightly buttery.
T: Begins off-dry, with rich toasted malt and candied orange peel. Acidity is very mild into the middle where flavors turn slightly drier, but with some of the aromatic qualities of maple syrup. The finish is mildly bitter, excellently complemented by metered herbaceous spice and honey.
M: Thin to medium viscosity, resinous but otherwise balanced on the palate, with low carbonation.
D/O: This stock ale is an exemplary rendition of the American amber style, if a bit strong. It shows that balance and restraint can be an interesting quality in and of itself. With the exception of one small-batch sour, this is HUB's best beer yet encountered.
