Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

And me (purposefully) without some corned beef... Anyway, this stuff pours a sunset amber-ruby topped by a finger of cream foam. The nose comprises rich caramel, a hint of roast, and a healthy smattering of earthy, almost mossy greens. The taste brings in more of the same, with a hearty balance maintained for most of the proceedings. Things topple a bit in the end, though, as the greens puncture through with a mild wave of soil-laden grassy bitterness. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda drying finish. Overall, a nice little red lass, nothing to write home about, but yet another solid offering from Boulevard.
