This is now one of my go to beers. It is hard to find. I hope it sticks around. Nice head and lacing. Great color. The Taste is unique with a bitter finish. Some of my Summer Shandy drinking friends don't care for it. Your friends will either like it or hate it! It is affordable ($6.49 a six) but the taste is what makes it enjoyable.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint.

A: Amber hue. Plenty of effervescence clings to the sides of the glass, and rises throughout. Pours a 1 finger, bubbly, white head. Settles fairly quickly, but not completely. Slight spotty lacing quickly retreats into the body of the brew.

S: Roasted malt, oak, clove, and molasses.

T: Peaty roasted malt, a little savory spice, bitter pecan shell, and a hint of brown sugar and molasses.

M: Hearty and malty. Something of a syrupy feel. Bitter finish.

D: Not quite a session brew... a little heartiness with result into a bit of a savoring experience.

Atmosphere is decent. Lots of effervescence, slight head, slight lacing. Nose is roasty with wood, spice, and sweet notes. Peaty and roasty malt flavor, accentuated with a little savory spice, bitterness, and a very slight sweet balance. Overall, this is a pretty good quaff.
