Thanks to myself for sending me a bottle from my trip to Phoenix!
Very light amber color, clear with a modest off-white head. Foam recedes quickly, leaving a bit of lacing on the sides.
Aroma is faint. I let it warm for a few minutes...after about 10 minutes, still faint. Some general fruitiness, and a bit of chocolate.
Mellow flavors all around. Chocolate is present from the nose, and there is a general fruitiness that I still can't put my finger on. Hopped well, although I can't say for sure what hops were used.
Mouthfeel is about the best thing about this beer. It's smooth and velvety. Finish is semi dry. A good beer to session maybe, or to enjoy with a meal, as it will remain unobtrusive.
An decent beer, and nothing exactly wrong with it, just sort of let down. A good lesson for me in not believing hype from now on.
