From the bottle: Nice brilliant amber color with red tones, about an inch of light tan head settles with no lacing. Aromas caramel, toffee, and a bit of fruit like cherry or current. The flavor is sweet and toasty, nice caramel down th middle with some toasty bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied with some crisp carbonation. Darker and maltier, in my opinion, than some alts... I likey.

Fresh growler. Looks like everyone else described. Fruity bready and a bit of metal nose. Nice balanced taste, bitter hops, fruity, bloomy and toast. Nice bitter linger. Someone else said it, more breweries should try this style
