Poured from a 22 oz. oddly-shaped bomber into a pint glass.
A - Almost Idyllic in its clear dark amber with a lovely little half-inch head that retains amazingly well. Also leaves a thick web of lacing.
S - Not a lot going on aroma wise. Slightly grassy and grainy, with a touch of pine and wood.
T - The bitter hops smack the tongue but quickly subside to usher in the malty, grassy, bready flavor. Kind of basic, but very enjoyable.
M - Medium carbonation, thin, slightly watery body.
D - clean flavors that aren't overwhelming and a low ABV make this an excellent session beer.
Overall - Is it a pale ale? A dark lager? It's somewhere in between. It's unique, not to mention uniquely American!
