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.
