Good tasting beer in the front and finish. Not too spiced for a winter, which is welcome. A bit of a lingering aftertaste which I credited to a OK feel. I would revisit this beer - another good - very good offering from southern tier.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on November 4, 2014.

The color of the pour is amber brown with a hazy appearance and a modest off-white head.

What is it with this aroma? Malts, check. Crisp hops, check. But I am getting something akin to peanut butter like a Reese's Cup. Seriously. The label describes the aroma as complex - that's for sure.

Medium body.

The malt characters play up first in the taste and the hop finish a mildly bitter and earthy. But I am also picking up that odd sort of peanut butter thing.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass.

A - Brown, with orange and ruby highlights. One finger head that moves to a thin lace. Little retention.

S - Grains, pine.

T - Grains, faint malts, a slight hop/pine bitterness on the finish.

M - Below average carbonation, slightly watery, and finishes clean.

O - a decent brew, very drinkable, although nothing about it stands out.
