Very tasty amber from Ballast!
A - This is the most impressive part of this one for me. It's got a beautiful brown body with a fantastic, super long lasting tan head. It's been sitting there for a while now and the head is still going strong.
S - Piney hoppy scent.
T - Piney hop flavor with some spicey notes that give it a fresh lively taste.
M - Lively as mentioned, but there's no overwhelming carbonation, which makes the long lasting head kind even more amazing.
D - Tasty and smooth. Almost perfect!

4.2/5 rDev +10.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: An amber brown with a thin white head that turns to a nice lace
Smell: A great malty scent hits the nose. Scents of caramel, nuts, and a bit of chocolate appear as well.
Taste: The malts balance nice with the strong roasted flavors found in the beer. More of the caramel appears on the back end as does a hint of nut. Finishes smooth with a bit of a chocolately aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: A very smooth, drinkable beer. Nice carbination throughout.
Overall: An exemplary example of the style. Absolutely worth revisiting!

A - Deep ruby, rocky off white head. Solid lacing.
S - Medium intensity tones of nuts, caramel and grassy hops.
T - More of the same from the nose. Malt forward with a sweet toasty character finishing with an astringent grassy hop character, really not my thing personally but very true to style.
M - Refreshing and quaffable.
O - Amazing take on the style.
Serving type: on-tap
