750ml brown bottle.

Beautiful deep amber hue that brings a perfect clarity. Lovely tight white lacing sticks well. Bready nose with notes of stone fruit, earthiness, fresh grass, & nutty yeast. A little thick and chewy, smoothness from a light carbonation lingers long. Malty, mild caramel and bread crust make up the maltiness. Hints of marmalade, green peppercorn and hop resin balance things out. Good level of warming from the alcohol rounds the semi-dry finish out.

A real charmer here, the balance here is pretty damn amazing with a high level of drinkability ... not saying that I am chugging it but rather is is very pleasing sip to sip.

Poured from a growler into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours a translucent red with a small white head. Smells of a nice fruit bouquet with hints of berries. Tastes of fruit, especially berries, but with a nice grain background and slight alcohol. Beer is full bodied but still finishes nicely and is extremely drinkable. Overall a very good beer.
