EithCubes (5025) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Bottle by 06/12/13. Nose is abundantly yeasty, a great fresh blonde yeast, some some vanilla and honey. A really dark, dim amber-copper color with a rocky, lacing whitish head. Taste is unexpectedly dry and bitter, just a sliver of sweetness to start but then departs. Very creamy with faint fruit, but the main thrust is creamy yeast-based flavor with some golden malt. Very lightly warming. Medium-full body with some depth, classy and with enough complexity for a smile.

Clear darker amber coloured beer with large white head and lots of carbonation. Malty fruited aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is fruited sweet malty ending slight bitter dry.
