Big thanks to kButler for this "extra" in our in-person trade @ D-Day. Glad I had a can of Daisy Cutter to toss his way for this. Been dying to crack this one open.
[L] Maduro pours a rich brown color into glass. Caramel towards bottom of glass. It appears to be non-clear, with ruby edges, and a gorgeous tan/brown top. Even the slightest swirl kicks up a good amount of foam. Laces the glass well.
[S] Beautiful nose of nuts, oats, caramel, chocolate, creamed coffee. Solid brown aroma. No stale notes either, as I'm not sure how old this is. At least a month in the fridge before this.
[T] Damn delicious beer. Upfront taste of caramel and some malty sweetness. Mid body presents chocolate, coffee and oatmeal, before more oats and coffee on finish. Roasty linger. Hits just about all you could expect for a brown.
[F] Feels pretty watery, but for the amount of flavor packed into such a light bodied beer, I can't complain. Carbonation is perfect. Finishes only a slight bitter.
[D] This beer is the definition of drinkability in the ABA category. Not sugary, nor hoppy. Not boring. Not boozy. Not a palate killer. Not filling. Easy going, and flavorful enough to keep you interested in the nuances over a few bottles. Not sure how this is packaged, but a 6 pack + wouldn't be out of the question. In the same market, this would probably be up there with BBB.
