Best by date of 05.2014.
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 02.08.14.

A: Deep red. Very see through.

S: Caramel. Very malty is it should be.

T: Follows the nose but with a touch of slight bitterness.

M: Crisp. Very bubbly.

O: This was a caramel bomb. The bitterness was barely noticeable, and nicely balanced the malt. This was interesting to try against the ambers that I've had. It was a simple beer, but good.
