11.2 ounce bottle poured into a Red Hook pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear golden straw with heavy carbonation. One-inch bone white head.

Aroma: Big malt presence up front. Also some interesting woodiness and nuttiness in there. Some grass, toast, and a small hint of lemon.

Taste: Taste follows the nose - big malt presence up front. It has a nice lingering malt flavor and finishes clean and dry.

Overall: Great all-seasons beer. I love that big malt flavor. Great in October, but also great in every other month.
