A vintage 2009 12 oz bottle pored into a terrapin pint glass
A - a cloudy dark amber red. It looks creamy, with a nice head and lace retention.
A - very sweet. Caramel malts overwhelm here. Citrus hops are very present too. Smells amazing
T - Like it smells, the sweets malts are very upfront. Caramel, toffee malts kick in hard and fast. It is then balanced out by the hops. Surpringly, it is not as hoppy as I expected. The hops compliment the crystal malts perfectly.
M - Medium bodied and lightly carbonated. Very smooth.
D - very high drinkability. This is one of my favorite beers, and is the one that turned me onto Terrapin. One of my favorite releases that I look forward too every year!
