Poured from a bottle into a standard pint glass

A - A pretty dark amber, mostly clear save for a little bit of haze.head dissolves quick and leaves thin lacing.
wa
S - Bready and a little peppery, but also a bit boozy on the nose.

T - A lot more malty than I expected. A bit resiny and fruity, with quickly fading hop bitterness. Slight bitterness on the aftertaste. Not very complex but easy drinking. No noticeable alcohol burn.

M - Carbonation is light and mouthfeel is not too weighty. Just right for the style.

Overall - It's inoffensive but doesn't pack a whole lot in flavor complexity. I was expecting something much bigger and bolder.

Pours a clear red amber with an abundant head that has excellent retention.
Aroma, leads with pungent hops, do not pick up maltiness here.
Actually a little sweet caranel maltiness at the start , then you get the hops along with some
pine nuts.
medium to heavier body. Chewy, creamy and dry.
Son-in Law from MS bought this at a family wedding weekend in N.J. Thanks to him.
