Bottle poured into a pint glass.
This beer appears a nice amber/red color with a good off-white head. The head lingers for a bit and leaves nice lacing. The aroma has a good malt backbone balanced nicely by a light citrus hop smell. The taste of this beer is very balanced but still has a good hop flavor. The initial flavor is caramel and other candy malt flavors which is followed by a great hop bitterness. The hops taste of citrus (lemon, orange) and leave a bittering effect after the fruit flavors vanish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and slight creamy.
This is one of my old standbys. It is relatively local (about an hour from where I live/70 miles) and it is abundant in this area. It is a great flavored ale and a well crafted beer. Troeg's does not make a mistake when they claim this as their flagship beer.
