A - Very nice, clear copperish pour with a one finger white head. Head shrunk down quickly however and the lacing was dismal in the standard pint glass. EDIT: Lacing far better second time around.
S - Lightly toasted maltiness, some bready scent, bit of caramel, and some hop aroma.
T - Pleasantly sweet in the front from the caramel malt. Bready in nature as well before giving way to a complimentary spicy profile from the hops and a moderate bitterness to balance.
MF - Lighter side of medium bodied, but bigger than its ABV suggests. Drinkable and light enough to session but without sacrificing taste. Perfect carbonation, nice finish.
O - The one that introduced me to better beers. Tasty, balanced, affordable. Great feel, sessionable. Works throughout the year. A staple for a reason.
