Poured from bottle into a tulip glass. Best by 25 SEP 2011 stamped on label.
A: Crystal, light copper with a copper hued head that dissipates fairly quickly and doesn't leave much lacing.
S: Strong toasted malts with biscuit and a slight hops aroma and a touch of honey.
T: Toasted malts, bready, biscuity, with a bit of cherry and a bit of a hops finish. Slight hint of pine oil.
M: Light-bodied and watery. Extremely clean and crisp.
O: The flavor doesn't work for me personally, but this is an important crossover craft beer. Lacks in many respects, however, and I would much rather have a Boulevard Amber Ale brewed locally. Readily available in many places as one of the most common 2 or 3 true craft brews outside of the local favorites.
