12 oz bottle poured into a sam adams glass. pours a lightly cloudy, rich amber color with a single finger of off white head. no lacings.
aroma is mainly of caramel malts, with a lightly sweet overall character and a hint of roasted malts. a light grassy aroma in the background rounds out the profile.
taste is of sweet caramel malt up front, with a creamy character and a lightly bready base. distant fruit notes of apple and pear mix in with the malts, working well to enrich the overall profile finishes with a note of distant grassy hops and caramel.
mouthfeel is medium bodied with a creamy texture. very smooth on the palate. finishes with soft CO2 and a lightly bitter aftertaste.
drinkablility is great. this is a rich and complex brew that has an excellent profile and a mellow finish. the flavors work well to create a complete profile, with a smoothness that makes it finish easy. cheers!
