poured from 12oz can into pint glass

A-nice amber color with a 2 finger head that leaves alot of lacing as it fades

S-I get some piney hops with some carmel malts

T-some bready carmel malt with some pine hops on the finish

M-good carbonation with enough hops to cut the sweetness on the finish

O-its been awhile since I had this and it is a good readily available beer

Enjoyed this 12oz bottle out of a large snifter glass. I had this on tap not too long ago – so I decided to try it out of the bottle.

A: Pours a clear copper hue with a solid, white, 2-finger head that leaves a nice trail down the glass and ends in a persistent lace.

S: Sweet caramel aroma with hint of spices and hops.

T: Smooth and slightly sweet flavor with a dominant caramel profile. Slightly fruity background and crisp finish.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation

O: These beers go down way to easy. So refreshing and enjoyable.
