been sitting on this a while since the site was down.

on tap at the Xroads pub, into my mug.

pours a dark amber color, small head with ok retention. Nose is nice and malty, add toffee. Taste is well balanced, leans slightly sweet. Good pale malt base with slight hint of chocolate, toffee, light citrus hop presense, hint of honey. Groovy. Medium bodied, creamy mouth. quite the session beer.

Got a growler from Westmere Beverage in Guilderland (Albany area) on 12-9-11 (cost me $12.99). Consumed and reviewed on 12-10-11. ABV is based on Westmere's "chalkboard" (actually a flat-screen TV above their growler station).

A: Poured into a pint glass. Body is clear, coppery-orangey-amber with a half-finger beigey-orange head. Leaves legs of lace on the glass after each sip.

S: Mild nose - some caramel malt & toffee-like sweetness.

T: Very pleasant - caramel malt, toffee and a touch of nuttiness. Also some toasted bready malt. Finishes with a faint bitterness, but it lingers in the aftertaste as a juicy, faintly lemony, bitterness. Nicely balanced.

M: Light-to-medium in heft, modest carbonation gives it a creamy feel (though it's possible that about 22 hours in the fridge has caused it to go a wee bit flat).

O: Well done. It has that caramel malt/toffee sweetness that I like for the style, but a solid hop bitterness providing some balance. A real easy drinker.
