4.7/5  rDev 0%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: 12 oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

Appearance: Tawny reddish copper brew with a semi creamy off white lace that leave rings around the glass.

Smell: Large malty aroma of caramel and toasted grain with a hints of hops on the nose also.

Taste: Smooth and well conditioned sporting a maltly medium body, both caramel and a nutty malt flavour from the carapils hit the tongue. Though as soon as the malt comes the hops show off a marked bitterness to balance. Small addition of wheat gives a little bit of crispness and adds to the drinkablity. Hop flavour and grain linger on and on well past the finish.

Notes: The best American brewed alt I have ever encountered ... hell one of the best ales to be brewed in all on New England to say the least. If you see it buy it ...
