I poured a bottle into a pilsner glass.

Appearance- Clear copper color with a fingers worth of head. Fair amount of lacing.

Smell- Caramel malt and biscuit aroma with a hint of yeast.

Taste- Very similar to the nose but with a more pronounced caramel malt sweetness. It has just enough fruity hop flavor to balance it out.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied and very smooth.

Overall- Many years ago this beer and Samuel Adams are what got me into trying different craft beers. I decided to try it again and it was like revisiting an old friend that I haven't seen for years. Very good beer that I need to drink more often.

I had to travel out of state, specifically to get this beer. It has a slightly hoppy taste, but it is very drinkable. This has been one of my favorite beers for a long time and making the journey across state lines is deffinately worth it. And the beer is constantly cold from the brewery to your mouth (it is one of the stipulations for the brewery i believe)
