draft. deep chestnut brown / red body. it’s a husky and slightly toasty red malt showcase: the toasted barley is crunchy and forward, it thankfully leans to the dry side, is kept very much in balance by a mild sweetness across the middle and ample American hop bitterness and fruitiness late. well-made.
