Started seeing this beer more frequently in Maryland over the last year so I figured I would "take it for a spin". ...groan.

S - Poured from 22 oz bomber with a 1/13/13 "best by" date into my favorite frosted mug.

A - A better than expected and frothy head sits on top of a rich amber body. The head eventually yielded, but hung around for at least half of the first pour. Average amount of lacing left behind.

S - The smell is the best thing about this brew! Not overpowering but very pleasant indeed. Subtle hints of cherry with a malted headiness. Very well balanced and unique.

T - Was expecting more based on the beautiful aroma, but was slightly dissapointed here. A little heavy on the malt for my tastes, but not bad. Aftertaste lingers awhile but is not bad either. Enjoyable, but nothing spectacular... a solid 3 in my book.

M - Lightly textured, cool, and crisp without a lot of bite. Nice.

O - I might have enjoyed this beer a lttle more a few monts back. It's winter here in Maryland and I think this beer would be a good summer ale. I'll stick with my porters and stouts and come back to this in April or May! This is a good solid American ale with a lot going for it... Just nothing remarkable. The label says they are "wind powered and employee owned"...I wish I could add extra points for those two facts alone!! Kudos!
