Deep, rustic red in color with a light haze. Poured with a creamy, rich, off-white foam that left a ladder of sticky lacings on the glass. Sweet, earthy grain and light herbal hop aromas. Medium bodied with rich, creamy smooth carbonation and a crisp, light tangy hop bite near the end. Sweet toasted caramel malt flavors up front with toffee and herbal hop notes into the middle. Tangy, earthy, crisp hop flavor through the middle that transitions back to sweet caramel and toasted malt. Finished cleanly with a bready, very sweeytoasted malt aftertaste. A generally neglected and underappreciated style that leans to that sweet, maltier side.
