EithCubes (4885) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 6, 2011
Bottle. Nose is lightly malty with subdued caramel tones and a little spice. Beautiful amber body with a short tan head. Taste is richly and juicily malty, lightly toasted grains and low bitterness, a few swirling earthen notes covering a thin base of diacetyl. Medium body is closer to flat than heavily carbonated. A good one!
