Picked this one up tonight at Brewforia on the way home from work.... Pretty pricey at $5.50ish, but still "new to me" sounded good.

Pours a fairly clear amber... only okay looking off white head... nice lacing.

Aroma is a good mix of spicy/earthy hops and medium caramel and deep toasted bread.

Nice bitterness balances a near perfect malt profile.... caramel malts and toasted biscuits ... Hops are pretty earthy .... a bit of fruity esters on the finish.

Medium bodied with the expected lighter carbonation.

Very very well done... I am impressed.

All 4's. (576 characters)
