12oz bottle poured into a Sam Adams' Perfect Pint. Best had by August 2011.
A- Pours a clear dark copper color with a finger worth of slightly off white head. Head dissipated into a few blobs of circular pools. Minimal fractured lacing on the glass.
S- Has a mixture of sweet caramel malt with some grassy and citrus hops. Nothing overpowering about this one with nothing off putting.
T- Bunch of mild malt flavors upfront: toffee and some caramel sweetness. Mid taste a mixture of more dominant grass hops with some citrus orange notes. Extremely balanced beer that doesn't have a single dominant flavor, which leads to an easy drink, but doesn't make it all that memorable.
M- Little heavier than I expected at a medium body with just enough carbonation. It wasn't that crisp, leaving a lot of lingering heaviness on the palate. A none distinct malt lingers.
O- This is still a good beer. Maybe I had a slightly subpar bottle, but it was still an enjoyable drink. It sits heavy on the palate which hurts the drinkability. It is so well balanced it might actually detract from its flavor profile. Very drinkable.
