Bulk_Carrier (3157) - 1st Republic, Vermont, USA - OCT 5, 2015
On tap at Hinesburg public house. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt amber color with a bar pourís kind of slim white head that just dissipated immediately. The smell started off with some deep toasty caramel malts embedded with floral and slightly funky tones. The taste copies the aroma leading into the aftertaste with a thick caramel malt depth. Itís mostly dry on the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation hits fairly light. Overall, itís a good Amber ale with some other things going on to try and make it stand out. If anything, itís a good effort by Lost Nation.

Extremely unique beer here, and definitely worth a try. Not sure if its one Iíd have all the time, but Iíve never tried anything like it. Not even sure how to explain the flavor profile here. Neat.
