4.1/5  rDev +5.9%

Got a growler of this at Olivers in Albany on 6/17/11 - cost $10.99. . . .

A: Poured from the growler into a pint glass. Body is clear, coppery-amber with mahogany hues. Small khaki head on top. Not much in the way of visible carbonation. No lacing.

S: A bit of caramel malt, but not terribly strong.

T: Caramel malt, toffee-like sweetness, balanced with a nice touch of hop bitterness at the finish, which lingers on the palate in the aftertaste - occasionally seems minerally, but never crossing over into metallic. At times the hops seem piney or slightly grassy, but not in a strong sense. As it warms, there's a berry-like sweetness too.

M: Heft is about medium, maybe a tad lighter. Despite visible evidence of carbonation, it's there - moderately sharp, but not obtrusive.

O: Overall impression: clean, flavorful amber/red that's nicely balanced with some hop bitterness. I could drink a lot of these.

Fresh growler poured into a cheater pint glass

S: clean maltiness, light foral hop

T: clean sweet maltiness that is bready. Slight chocolate, balanced nicely with floral hop

M: light to medium bodied, crisp.
