Purchased at a large chain restaurant because it was the only craft beer selection they offered that I hadn't tried.
A-Pours a transparent,dark amber with a fleeting,two inch crown that left moderately pleasing ribbons of lacing as it departed.
S-Not much here.I let my glass get to room temp before I poured but the nose was still lacking.Some caramel malt,faint seasonal(ginger,cinnamon)spice,some dull earthy hops
and stale wheat bread.
T-Drinks like an American Red Ale.Toasted,slightly sweetened grains,generic spice blend,slight herbal hop bitterness and mild caramel sweetness.Also a slight metallic note on the finish.
M-Thin,watery and lackluster.What's there isn't horrible but overall the minuses far outway any positive traits.
Serving type: bottle
