I had this beer on-tap at the brewery in a taster glass.

Appearance: medium red-brown hue with a moderate haze and a thin layer of ivory foam. There’s a nice lace left on the glass.

Smell: light in intensity and kind of generically amber in character. Not flawed, but not particularly exciting.

Taste: strong and malty, as you would expect, but with a bit of dusty tobacco and a very lightly fruity sweet finish. Smooth and tasty; a fine barleywine.

Mouthfeel: medium-rich body with a good carbonation and creaminess. Quite nice.

Overall: this isn’t a blow-me-away barleywine, but it is smooth and approachable, which I like. Very drinkable for its ABV.
