Appearance is a very nice head that fades with pretty lacing. It is more brown amber than red.

Nose is spiced and musty, with day old bread and cardamom and wet malt.

Taste is big malt with lemon peel and citrus hops and sourdough bread.

Mouthfeel is semi-dry with a lot of biscuit character. Medium carbonation. Very drinkable.

Overall, this would be a great session for a long ball game.

Poured deep reddish amber topped by a fine bone-colored head that leaves some webby lacing on the glass.

Aroma: Dank, earth English hops with some biscuit in the background.

Flavor: hop forward for style, Mildly bitter.

Feel: both crisp and smooth.
