Brewer claims this beer is maltier, hoppier, and a bit more alcoholic than their standard Lift Bridge Brown. Growler purchased yesterday evening, just opening it now.
A - Pours a toasty reddish-brown with a thin, creamy head. Some spots of lacing stick.
S - Sweet malt, hints of melted brown sugar and molasses. Really not getting anything crazy here.
T - Sweet, heavily toasted caramel malts, actually a tad coffee-ish, finishes with a drying, moderate hop bitterness. Often this style is brewed too sweet, so the hoppy finish and slight coffee bitterness provide a nice contrasting balance.
M - Browns aren't supposed to be thick and chewy, but I think this is actually a little wimpy for my taste. Slightly above average carbonation that prickles a bit.
D - A pleasant, easy-drinking brown that is more complex and balanced than their Lift Bridge Brown offering, but nothing that wows me.
