muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - AUG 17, 2006
5 oz draught sample at the Gaylord, MI location, July 2006. Dark amber with a touch of retained head and a bit of lacing....toasty malty-sweet nose offers a bit of baked apple as it warms....dry and rather dull body, a bit of cidery sweet-tartness as you go through it but really very little to glom onto. Words fail me as the beer did....
