A-The beer pours a very clear garnet color and is capped with a rocky tan head that when finally dies down leaves lacy tan-colored foam on the inside of my glass.
S-There is a malty grainy aroma with has some biscut like toasted notes that you can pick up on initially. I can detect some sort of grape-like ester aroma (maybe from the yeast). There was little to no hop aroma in my beer.
T-I can taste malty/caramel type flavors first which transitions to a distinct bitterness after a moment. The beer has a smooth viscous quality that is tasty while the hops provide an interesting counterpoint with there astringent bitterness.
M-The beer has a low level of carbonation that enhances the medium mouthfeel.
D-While I don't think that I'll drink a lot of this beer I have to say that it's balanced and enjoyable. The hops provide a relief for the malty sweetness that makes the beer quaffable.
