Draft, pint glass

A – Deep brown with some garnet highlights. Clear. A small amount of tan head that mostly dissipated before the glass arrived to the table.

S – Milk chocolate and light caramel. Some mild noble hop aroma. Roasted but not bitter malt.

T – Chocolate with mild toffee notes. Slightly bitter malt, mostly roasted and chocolatey-sweet.

M – Moderately carbonated, tends to stay on the sweet side, with just a touch of bitterness.

O – A very smooth, easy drinker, with some noticeable flavor characteristics. I’m not in love, but I would drink it again.
