I had a 12oz bottle that found it's way into my cellar. My mistake, so I better drink it.

A - Pours a clear, reddish-amber with a thin tan head. Decent retention and lacing.

S - Slight hoppy grass, carmel, and roasted malts.

T - Smooth carmel malts with a slight hop background. Nice balance.

D - Average carbonation and body. A very balanced presentation.

O - Sweeter, but not overly. Smooth drinker.
