Bottle shared by Sean, thanks! Poured a hazy red with a gray brown head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was full of malts with bread and grain notes with a slight sweetness. Flavor was slightly bland with some grains and bread but not much else.

Brown pour with ruby highlights, a floral and fruity nose and hints of roasted grain, caramel and toffee. The flavors follow suit pretty true to the aroma, with additional fruit from the American ale yeast.
