Poured into a Delirium Tremens snifter. Label says 10 09 2015.

A- Pours a reddish medium brown color with a 1/2 inch light tan head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of bubbly surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves large clots behind

S- Moderate hop aroma along with some crystal malt as well as some cereal grain like malt sweetness.

T- Nice hop/malt duality at first, then there's a metallic finish that I'm not really digging. Medium bitterness that lingers a bit. Yeah, the metallic taste clashes with the bitterness and isn't doing this beer much justice. Gets a little better as it warms.

M- Sharp from the hops with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.

O- Wanting to like this beer but I wish there was more of the malt sweetness in the flavor that I'm finding in the aroma.

A: Pours a crystal clear medium copper-ish amber in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and some light golden yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall foamy/creamy beige head that reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer with a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed,

S: Light to moderate aromas of biscuit, caramel, and toasted malts with a slightly heavier aroma of spicy, herbal, and earthy hops in the finish.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of biscuit, caramel, and toasted malts with just a hint of nuttiness and a light amount of brown sugar sweetness. There is a moderate flavor of spicy/peppery hops with a lighter note of herbal and earthy hops. Light to moderate amounts of bitterness which slowly fades away.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth.

O: Not exactly what I was expecting, kind of a hybrid English/American style with a much more of English hop choice. Enjoyable and relatively easy to drink, but not sure I would have more than one of these in an evening (or afternoon).
