on cask at Lemmings in Chicago. this brew pairs quite well with a couple intense games of Jenga. pours a mildly hazy amber color with a single finger of super thick off-white head that retains wonderfully and leaves solid lacings.
aroma is of rich hop oils mixed with light malts and a solid smoothness that blends everything together. some mellow caramel malts show up upon a bit of swirling.
taste follows the nose with a wonderful character and a solid spiced hop quality that blends perfectly with caramel malts. a touch of crystal malt make the brew lightly sweet overall. very well balanced.
mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and super smooth with a solid hop character ad satisfying finish.
drinkability is solid. very well proportioned and easy drinking on cask. cheers!
