COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional light hop flavour balances the sweet malty caramel taste. The addition of a pinch of roast barley during the brewing process lends a distinctive roast bite which is balanced by a crisp dry medium bitterness.

floydslip (292) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 20, 2015
Deep auburn beer with a thin beige head. Nose of brown bread, light caramel, and a little bit of cocoa. Flavor is pleasant with light toasted bread, cream soda, and vanilla punctuated by a dry bitterness that lingers. Enjoyable, if unremarkable, beer.

Bottle. Clear deep red with semi beige big head dissipating slowly leaving lots of lacings. Nice appearance. Aroma is mild, with slight dough, coffee, jam, red berries, slight hoppy/flowers. Taste is bitter, with a mashup of roasted malt, coffee and slight caramel, unfortunately over cooked vegetables, more red berries in the finish. Light to medium body, medium carbo.
