bhensonb (10697) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 23, 2009
Bottle. Pours a light copper/amber with a slight white head. Aroma of caramel with some very light fruit and spice. Near medium body with rather creamy carbonation. Flavor is fruit - maybe citrus - it has tang, caramel and mild bitter. Nutty. Really quite tasty, and it’s more dry than sweet. Good beer.
