Nose: caramel toastiness with fruit, mint to pine.
Brilliant deep gold to amber under a 2" bone white finely bubbled foam cap that quickly dissipates to a thick film, lacy.
Palate: Grainy, toasty rather than roasty malt, light fruit, a hint of melon, woody rustic hops, minty, slight acid tang with a long grainy, hoppy finish.
Medium body with carbonation just above average, creamy,
.

This beer is much better than this app! Nice balance. Malty with the right spicy hop notes to bring it into focus. A nice brown with a prolific head after a hard pour. Nice lacing on the glass. Classic brew.
