Enjoyed this guy while working on a table. My wife enjoys poters so I only got to drink half of it :( It was a nice smooth feel with a decent aftertaste that lingered for a while. Very happy with it.

Wonderfully complex, balancing roasted maltiness, mild hops, acidity and a particular flavor that I believe is related to the yeast, as with the Anchor Liberty Ale. A desert island brew (assuming that island has winters).
