a - slightly hazy gold/amber. A little darker, plenty of head that fades quickly to a thin monolayer.
s - smells like american barlewine! Caramelly malts and bittering hops, sweetness and alcohol backbone. A touch of fresh hops as well.
t - as expected from the smell, but not as powerful as I would have guessed. Balanced malt up front, some bitter/hoppy play in the middle, pleasant [balance] to finish. Not *dry*, not *sweet*. Quenching and tasty. Subsquent sips put a big hop flavor punch up front before the malt. Yummy beer. Delicious, and will be fine aged, but fresh is probably something special. Hops really come through as it warms.
It started too cold, and now it's a huge hop bomb. Great beer!
m - large amount of carbonation, a little harsh on the tounge but not bad.
d - very good, I would drink a few more of these if I had them!
