no bottled on date

A: Pours a crystal clear amber with 2 fingers width of tan colored head. Head dissipates down at a moderate, to a thin film that remains throughout the drink. Lots of honeycomb lacing.

S: Some sweet and some almost smokey malts. Some adjunty- type aromas. Not much many characters at all.

T: Follows the nose in that the malt bill is the dominant player. Theres a burnt grass/herbaceous character. Some hops come out in the flavor, but not a lot. Just some subtle bitterness.

M/D: Medium body, appropriate carbonation, drinkability is average.

O: Meh. Not something Id probably buy again. Id drink if it were given to me though.

Served from tap into a COAST Willi. Poured a copperish yellow-orange with a one finger off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacingthroughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, earth, caramel, caramel hop, earth hop, and subtle powdered chocolate. The flavor was of sweet malt, earth, earth hop, subtle chocolate, caramel, and caramel hop. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. For the style this really wasn't a bad brew. However, nothing really stood out too much on this one though which was rather unfortunate. The chocolate note going on in this one was interesting, but just not enough to take it to a new level. Worth trying at least once if you get the chance but that's about it.
