12oz bottle - no visible packaged on/enjoy by date on the bottle.
1/4" off white head retains as a cap, glowing red, good clarity but inundated with floaters suspended in it. Patchy lacing.
Caramel, sweet malts, brown bread, faint pine.
Pine, spicy hop notes. Bread crust. Burnt caramel sugar. Faint smoky note.
Medium body, low to medium carbonation. Long finish and well balanced.
Good stuff, been a minute since I brought any BR home. Would like to see a very visible date of some kind. And no floaters.
