3.38/5  rDev -12.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

P: Clear reddish amber color with a finger of quickly disappearing head. Few bubble stream to the top and from there becomes quite placid.

S: sweet earthy candied malts, yeast, molasses and hay.

T/M: Dry light sloshy liquid with good carbonation and slightly mouth numbing. Earthy, caramal malt with a small citrus backbone. Maybe hint of wood. Dry, crisp finish.

O: Nice drinkable beer with mild but delicious flavor. Well done.

Serving type: bottle

From a bottle with a Braille like code 3MN, twelve ounces.

Has a Brady malt aroma. Pours deep amber with a nice beige head. The head lasts about a minute with moderate spotty lacing on the glass. The taste is Brady, slightly fruity. It is crisp not overly carbonated. Very nice, should be even better on a hot summers day!
