Can't believe I haven't tried this one yet. Finally picked up a single today. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
Appears a very nice looking clear amber color with very lively sparkling carbonation that produces a big three finger off-white head brimming over the top of the pint glass. Leaves a fair amount of lacing on the side of the glass.
Aroma is almost non-existent, very faint hints of caramel malts and herbal/earthy hops.
Taste is full of toasty flavors with some caramel malt. Earthy hops come out strongly on the finish with a good amount of bitterness and almost have a very slight minty flavor.
Mouthfeel is medium-light and insanely smooth, I love the hyrbid ale/lager thing.
I had no idea what to expect from this beer but it's really quite good. It might be the color, but for some reason this beer reminds me of autumn. I could see this being very sessionable this coming season.
