Smooth and clean with a rich malt character and moderately dry finish. Noble hop bitterness is present but elegantly balanced by the malty backbone.

draft, and not sure why I haven’t rated this one, surely have drank enough of it over the years. nice malt nose with a mild bitterness of hops. the flavor is a medium semi sweet malt base with that nice little tang of the hops...this one finished kind of dry on the end but that’s ok. good over all mouth feel. nicely balanced. seems to get better each years.

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2014 Tap @ Bluegrass: Hazy orange & dark amber color, lazy beige collar sitting on top. Bready cracker aroma with an abundance of caramel malt that has a slight metallic note running through it. Toasty flavor, lots of stale caramel, bready yeast, & a good bit of DMS towards the finish. Slight earthiness, but hops are quiet. Malt doesn’t have much robustness, feels kind of thin all around. A little bit of dirty-ish, lingering bitterness in the finish. Just okay.
