Bottled in February 2014 tasted at the end of October. This one’s going to be stale. Bomber into nonic pint. Copper body with off-white finger high head. Some patches of lace. Aroma is dim caramel malt, some citrus, and earth. Taste is muted bready sweetness and muted floral bitterness. Medium body, a notch in the direction of thick texture, average carbonation, astringent finish.

Decent flavor and it is one of the ones that is always on tap or in the stores. I was able to try some brandy barrel aged, amazing.

Served on tap in a pilsner glass. Pale golden color, nice clarity. Good carbonation with medium white head. Good hop presence, with pine/ resin the dominant flavors. Overall a good session ale.
