Draft at Capone's in PA.

A- Clear-ish golden pour from draft to a tasting snifter. Small foamy cap and a small ring leaves spotty lacing.

S- They sure do have a way with wine and grapes. Merlot grapes, grape skin, oak, all things vinous and a hint of lactic tartness. Simple but truly a joy to smell.

T- Bold merlot grapes and vinous oak barrel. Grape juice, skin and slight bitter seeds, a bit juicy. Lactic tartness throughout and hints of vanilla, pear, whole grain and lemon. Slight funk.

MF- Very silky smooth and foamy. Massive level of carbonation but still super soft and creamy. Ends tart and slightly bitter.

The merlot grapes are fantastic and quite the brilliant transformation of a Pilsner.
