A: 1/2 a finger of head cover a amber beer. The head has nice tight bubbles. Fantastic lacing. Completely coats the glass.

S: Very slight sweet smell. Some floral scent. The nose is weak overall.

T: Sweet balances out the bitter. The bitter is totally subdued. There is a slight hint of a skunked taste. I can't decode the born on date. It is possible that the hops have faded - but I like the swet and not bitter profile.

M: Nice level of carbonation. Nice body.

O: I like this - it is a departure from the hop bombs that everyone is producing. There is a nice balance that allows the malts to showcase teh sweetness.
