Growler... Clear, Longhorn-orange ale with a large, fizzy, off-white head. The nose is a swirl of vanilla, gingerbread, deeply roasted cashews and almonds, chocolate, caramel and toffee. The flavor is well-balanced, although it does lean slightly toward the sweet side. Big caramel, toffee and roasted almonds cling to a slender malt backbone. Light to medium-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Thin, watery finish. Kudos ring out to scraff for sending the growler!
