A - this JH brew arrives a hazy ruddy reddish brown color, with half a finger of pure white head

S - roasted malts are delightfully sweetn and not overpowering, the malts sit atop a decent hop backbone

T - similar to the aroma, the honey sweetness is noticeable but not powerful

M&D - pleasant, smooth enough, not too deep or complex, but completely enjoyable, a great session beer with some uniqueness

Had at the Manchester, CT location.

Made with Pale, Cara-Vienna, Carafa and Munich malts, and honey. Hopped with Progress, Tettnang, and Kent Golding hops.

This was a red-brown, clear beer with only a ring of head in my sample glass.

Aroma was sweet, with caramel and a hint of weak cherries present. That was a surprise.

Taste was of nice, nutty malt, with caramel and honey notes noticeable. Now as sweet as the aroma would lead one to believe.

Mouthfeel was good, decent body, not thin.

Drinkability is good. This one would have gone well with one of their flatbread pizzas, had I not been driving. (And in the mood for a burger, but that's neither here nor there.)
