*Can't believe I never reviewed this*

A: Pours a fairly clear reddish brown (amber) color. I got a nice two finger fluffy off white/tannish head on this. Nice carbonation. Leaves some lacing bits.

S: Get that nuttiness that you usually pull from a amber and brown ales. Some earthy hops are behind it. Definitely those sweet biscuit like malts that this beer is known for.

T: Taste follows the nose. Sweet bready malts dominate this brew. Definitely getting that nuttiness that you pulled from the nose. The hops are meshed in nicely. Easy light bitterness to match the sweetness. Finish is slightly dry. Lingering flavors from the malts.

M: Medium bodied. Good carbonation.

Serving type: bottle
