Pours clear and orange brown with a crimson blush. Has good clarity adn you can see a stream of bubbles coming up from the center to meet a loose head of tan foam that falls fast and does not leave lace. There is a nice honey hue around the edges. Nose is malty. Bread, rich malt and a some earthy peat. A good fruitiness that is deep in the beer so you can't really name it and maybe a faint bit of grass. Taste is outstanding. Before your realize ti you have swallowed and what resides on the palate in the quick remembrance of an exceptionally smooth malty experience. There are several factes to this malt. The breaddiness which is dry and crisp and not too deep. There is dry cracker that keeps it light. And the earthy peat that could favor a variety of different malty expressions but finds caramel in this one. It's a bit sultry it's a bit dapper. The fruitiness is the middle and this finishes with a subtle rise in hops to a light grass and a faint bitter underneath the beer to push ti along the palate and finish it with a lovely lingering malty sweetness. Tall in the glass and not too sweet I loved this and thought it was excellent.
