Goodgrief (1762) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - APR 11, 2011
On tap at Media location. Exactly what the description stated...a boldly hopped brown. Amber brown pour with light colored frothy head and pretty good lacing. Caramel malt dominates with a lot of roast, hints of cocoa and even a touch of cherry-like fruitiness with a moderately bittering finish with hints of citrus. A good brown ale.
