Drank from one pint lager glass at about 60F

Malt, brown sugar, molasses, and caramelized red meat juices are abundant and well balanced. Sounds heavy but it is not at all. Does have a booze taste, but it matches the flavor profile and is very faint...I like it.

Immensely drinkable and refreshing. I do tend towards this brew during the winter months though. This is not a heavy hop American ale.

The price is what is greatest. Between Obama's America and his hidden inflation and the current trend of craft brews escalating in price, this is a much welcomed sensibility priced every day bargain pearl of a brew.
