This one is a tawny dark red-brown color, some light coming through for an overall effect of translucence. The tan head starts off big, a mix of foamy and spritzy, which condenses for a strong full finger and sticks down good lace.
The aroma is somewhat nutty and earthy with some fruity esters and a fairly strong tang.
That nutty tang carries through in the flavor. It's sharp to the point of almost being sour, and there's some bitterness from earthy and herbal hops.
The feel is crisp and biting, medium dry with a fair smoothness that could use just a bit of cleaning up.
