Still a favorite of mine after all these years. This was a staple in my apartment when it first came out. Still like to have it on hand. Huge head that towers over my glass, four fingers plus. Clear reddish amber with mild carbonation. Lots of lace clinging in clumps and rings. Smell has lots of yeasty bread with toasted malt graininess. A nice bit of floral hops and light citrus. A hint of earth sneaking in. Taste is solid with a good balance of malt and hops right up front. Caramel sweetness is couched in malt. A bit of biscuit and a touch of sourdough. Firm hop bitterness balances beautifully. Finish is long and dry with an earthy/citrus hoppiness. Just a touch of citrus and hop oil lingering. Feel is smooth and crisp with a mildly effervescent carbonation that is spot on. Just a great overall beer. Super drinkable with an ability to be a gateway beer while at the same time offer all a sophisticated palate could want. Proud to make this one review number 500.
