Working my way through the beers my dad brought back. This is a winner for sure!

Pours a deep ruby amber color with a beautiful off white head and tiny bubbles. Not great lacing, but still a great looking beer.

Smells of citrus, pine, and grassy hops, light caramel malt and a vanilla oak like characteristic.

Taste opens with the bread and caramel with the hops washing over in waves. Its got a depth from the oak that brightens the finish with vanilla. This is fantastic! Very juicy is the only way I can describe the taste combined with the mouthfeel.

Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated and nice moderate mouthfeel.

Overall, this is a winner- and I though hottenroth was the best Bruery beer!
