Pours a hazy bright orange with a 1/2" head that disappears rapidly. No lacing.
Smell=summer field-sweetish clover, light floral hops, slight citrus mixes with heavy smelling malts.
Nice strong malt character leads this little parade--sweet cracker melds into a bite which is followed by a dry finish that lingers. There is a slight bitterness enmeshed in the acidic bite. The hops stay firmly in the background and give a nice support for the rich malts.
The mouthfeel is a bit more aggressive in this beer- the stronger carbonation teams with the excellent rich bodied malts to make this feel substantial - not thick, not creamy, just a nice thick full body....like Jessica Rabbit.
And as with J.R. I couldn't get enough of this. I'll be grabbing a case of two next time I'm in the distribution area.
