last minute grocery store purchase pre - wolfpack vs tennessee opener
a: served in a curved pint glass, the beer is a deep reddish brown in color, topped with a finger of khaki head that retains well and leaves some lace behind
s: lots of nutty roasted malts with a touch of caramel sweetness, earthy pine and some grapefruit rind, leafty and autumnal, a hint of fruit here and there
m: carbonation medium-high, body on the lighter side of moderate, crisp but satisfying mouthfeel
t: surprisingly flavorful at first sip - toasted and roasted malts give leafy, toffee dipped coffee flavors, nutty, some glimpses of darker fruits, well hopped with notes of earthy pine and dried citrus, a good flavor set here
o: an interesting beer that pulls off a nice complexity between hop and malt while not overwhelming, instead maintaining great balance
Serving type: bottle
