pint pour at the brasserie V in Madison wisconisn

look is a darkish copper pour, with a silky egg-white head. mostly clear. smell is roasted Scottish malt. spices, sweet rolls. taste is smooth and malty, being ~4% isn't noticable, there's a crispness and spiciness that round out the flavor.

good "session" beer.

12 oz nitro-tap pour into an imperial pint at the Horse & Plow in Kohler's American Club during the Kohler Festival of Beer.

A - Jigger pours with a gorgeous cascading resulting in a rich, creamy head and clear burnt amber brown color. Lace coats the whole glass as I drink the brew.

S - Toasted biscuity malts provide a good base wile low earthy hop tones balance out the malt nose well.

T - Toasted biscuity caramel malts add good background sweetness and are complimented by earthy, light citrus hops on the finish.

M - Smooth as velvet, creamy as churned butter and clean finishing with a dry, lightly hopped finish.

O - The fantastic balance and flavor is made even better by the supreme drinkability of this low ABV brew. A session ale with great qualities!
