Bottle courtesy of Iowaherkeye. Thanks!
Think I waited to long on this beer. Pours a bright clear reddish orange malt with a small beige head. Smell is sticky, stale, gooey malt with band aid qualities and metal. Probably not as it was intended. Unappealing malt flavor and metal as well.

12 oz. bottle poured into a craft tumbler

A- Copper with great clarity. White head. Dense. Speckles of lacing.

S- Smell is toasty malt with some nice earthy noble hops. Subtly spicy. Also a subtle sweetness.

T- Sweetness comes out more, but is fairly delicate. Hops are earthy and balance well. All backed up by a toasty malt character.

M- Medium body. Crisp finish. Carbonation is fine.

O- Very tasty. Hop profile is great. The malt character is a great balance of toasty and sweet.

Filling the glass releases spicy malt aromas with some kettle sugars.
The beer pours brilliant copper under a 1” finely bubbled foam cap that produces good lace all the way down.
Very malty palate, rich yet clean and smooth, spicy malts.
Medium body and carbonation
