Arrives in my greedy little mitt a dark amber liquid with a creamy, tan head. I suspect the retention is good but since the table got bumped and the head got spilled... Good lacing, though.
Smell is a well-balanced malt and hop combo with sourdough and a nut note. Very nice.
Taste is exactly what you would expect from the smell, malt, slightly evergreen hop note,sourdough bread and nuts. Great balance.
Mostly full bodied, lightly effervescent, with a faint dryness to it. Drinks so much like my perception of an English pale ale with a lessened hop note. Good all around.
Serving type: on-tap
