Sampled many times both on tap & from a bottle. Pours a rich amber with a frothing off-white head that laced very nicely. Subdued aroma of toasty bread, doughy yeast, & mild spicy hops. In the mouth this initially hits with sweet malt and delicate cookie. Hints of toffee & moderate caramel linger and are complimented well by the tame, but spicy, peppery, & floral hop flavors. Actively carbonated and medium bodied. While this is not exactly my favorite style, this brew is well-crafted, consistent, and a fine example.
Serving type: on-tap
