22 oz bottle, poured into a curved pint glass.
A-Light amber, clear. Puffy head that dissipates fairly quickly, lacing sticks around a little bit. Nice
S- toasted malts, a little bit of flowery hops and a hint of Belgian sweetness of sorts
T- light toasted malts, and nutty. The sweetness is just slightly "Belgiany" to me, but we're not talking like a Dubbel or anything. The malt taste is the very definition of biscuity.
M- light to medium, light carbonation. Not really slick, and not overly drying.
O- I really can see how this is a great "gateway beer" into the world of craft brewing. I'd have this anytime, anywhere.
