Beer Review from
Appearance-Warm, inviting amber with great clarity and a moderately small
ivory-cream head which shows decent retention.
Aroma-Sweet grainy, cereal malt with slight toasty biscuit, light butter
toffee, and a hint of caramel. Hopping is extremely light in the aroma.
Smooth and rather clean.
Flavor-Smooth caramel and cereal grain malt sweetness up front with toasted
toffee. Moderate bitterness and spicy liberty hops with a little bit of
floral fruit and woodiness in the finish.
Mouthfeel-Medium body and moderate carbonation. Smooth. Easy drinking.
Easy drinking and pretty tasty. Refreshing and quite crushable for a beer
with this much character and personality. I don't usually reach for lagers
in the winter, but this is pretty tasty.
