A - One-inch whitish head fades fairly quickly but leaves a light floating layer. Pour is a reddish copper, great deep color yet great clarity.
S - Earthy malts and slight hop bitterness. Hints of yeast and biscuits. Also a mild sweet note that interweaves with the hops.
T - A mildly spicy, dry hopsiness predominates the body with some slighty sweet & grassy malt foundation. Distant molasses notes, but the sweetness is so integrated that it's hard to really tease apart the flavors. The finish is where this brew really leaves you wanting more: a lingering oaty, biscuit flavor makes you feel like you can see the mash. Some brown sugar sweetness also lingers with that light hop bite.
M - Lightly carbonated, it keeps the beer lively while feeling substantial. Not too slick, but not heavy either. Well balanced.
D - A great brew, goes great with almost any food and has enough character to stand well on its own. The unique balance of maltiness and sweet hop bite will bring you back for another pint.

2.89/5 rDev -18.8%

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle with no code date visible into a pint glass and get 1/4 finger of head.
A: Pours a dark amber color and I get 1/4 finger of head that is gone almost immediately to leave a ring around the top of my glass. There is a little lacing but nothing to write home about.
S: Sweet malts and the smell of nuts.
T: Taste of sweet malt a little bitterness and finishes sweet. Overly sweet.
M: Medium-bodied and carbonated. It goes down ok.
O: This beer is just ok. This is not a beer I would go to again.
