A-Pours a crimson hue with pretty burnt orange highlights. The head is small but the lacing it leaves behind is quite attractive.
S-Nose is surprisingly lighter than I would have expected. Behind the sweet malts is some pleasant pine and floral aromas. Not very impressed by the nose but the taste is always the most important aspect of the beer.
T-The flavor is better than the nose. Piney bitterness and floral hoppiness play well with the deep malty sweetness. The bitter aftertaste lasts for quite a while. I get a tea-like flavor as well which is pleasant. The beer is balanced and flavored well.
M-Lighter side of a medium body. Carbonation is vibrant. Slightly resinous.
O/D-Pretty good. I would consider buying another 6 pack. Maybe a bit fresher would make this one come to life on the palate more. But I love the style, and I love Troegs. No Nugget Nectar, but that goes for most beers. Happy with the results.
