Picked up the 2 Liter glow in the dark growler

Color - Dark cooper, reddish, but darker than an amber

Smell - Sweet and a little bit malty. Smell is definately not overpowering

Tastle - Slight hoppiness. but also very sweet taste, could drink this all night. No lingering after taste

Overall a top notch Maiback. At 6.5% it is very easy drinking and is a perfect combination of very slight hoppiness and sweetness.

Serving type: Growler

Not my favorite style, but this is a nice version of it. First had this back in college, but most recently had a 12 oz. bottle poured to a tulip glass. Beautiful amber color with small white head on top. This one has a very solid aroma: caramel, biscuits, pine, toffee, citrus. Doesn’t go down particularly easy for only 6.6%, but a nice changeup. Flavor is biscuity malts, some caramel sweetness, and a good bit of hefty bitter and booze for the abv. Overall, I liked this but not over the top on it.
