FreshHawk (596) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 15, 2010
Cask. A - Golden amber brown with a full creamy white head that settles into a great lacing. S - A little faint but smells of some toasted malt. A bit of grassy and earthy hops are also present. T - Toasted malt and grain make up the body and a good amount of the flavors. Some nutty flavors and a little bit of toffee flavors as well. Some earthy hops come in and out along with some grassy and herbal hops. Not too bitter, rather just a slight general bitterness matched with some more sweeter tones from the malt. M - Medium body as well as creamy and a touch drying. D - Easy to drink and it goes down easy. Not too sweet or bitter, just a refreshing drink. Notes: Nothing to get excited over, but a nice, less bitter, kind of session beer. Lots of different malt flavors.
