Hard to believe I have loved this beer for years and never reviewed it here! It's out in 12 oz. cans now, formerly only growlers and 750ml bottles. Time to play catch-up!

No dating info on the can that I can find, but BBC just came out with this in cans two or three weeks ago.

Poured from the 12 oz. can into a Samuel Adams English tulip glass.

a: Clear amber with lots of carbonation bubbles clinging to the sides of the glass. A finger thick white head receded to thin even surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Sweet malt. Also a kind of cedarish aroma which is very pleasant. Only other beer I have had that has a similar aroma is Cigar City's Humidor Series IPA, but that is more Spanish cedar, like the inside of a good cigar box. This is more like clean clothes that just came out of a cedar chest. Yeah I know. Wild. Oh yeah and when I was younger, Bud seemed to actually have a kind of beechwood flavor note to it.

t; Mild caramel malt forward followed by a light to moderate hop bite which builds towards the back sides of the tongue. Sweet to dry finish.

m: Light to moderate.

o: Seems a bit lighter than I remember, but the malt and cedar combo is very pleasing. This is sure to become a regular in my beer drinking rotation now that is in convenient 12 ounce cans.

Serving type: can
