341ml bottle poured into pint glass nov26 2009
A clear copper with a fair bit of carbonation, not much for head or lace however
S pretty mild with mostly grainy malt with some sweetness to it
T as it smells but better, lots of malt and enough hops for a balance and a little sweetness
M highlight of this beer, a good bite with a heavy feel to it, thicker then I expected from the color
D it's very easy drinking and quite possibly Big Rock's best offering.
It had been a long time since I had one of these and it's restored some of my faith in Big Rock. now I don't think Big Rock makes awful beers, but this ones well above their average
I wish they would brew some new stuff other then the bandwagon lime lager and the decent but not great winter spice.

From the tap, pours nice amber with rich, creamy head that lasts a bit.
Smell is neutral, a bit of grains, but mild.
Light, balanced flavor. Caramel, make presence, a bit of bitter hops, some alcohol burn on the finish, but only mildly.
Easy to drink, light and crisp, clean finish.

341ml bottle poured into a 16oz pint glass.
A - Big frothy light tan head. The beer is a nice clean amber-red hue. Good head retention with some nice lacing.
S - Really nutty. Lots of peanuts and caramel malt. It's simple, but appealing. A nice hearty malty aroma.
T - Caramel malt and nutty character don't translate quite as well as I was hoping. A little metallic. Finishes with a slight hop astringency and alcohol warmth. A lot more nutty than expected, with a slight sweetness to it as well. Overall a nice malty profile, that's drinkable but not exceptional.
M - Light-to-medium carbonation, done fairly well. Body is about medium. Pretty smooth feel. Nice finish.
D - A nice easy drinking ale with a malty profile. Nothing exceptional, but it's something I could see myself trying again. Not too bad.
