Gold Medal Winner at the 2009 Great American Beer Festival. Silver Medal Winner at the 2010 World Beer Cup. This handsome ale is created by balancing a selection of crystal and caramel malts, then moderately hopped resulting in a rich, full flavored satisfying brew.

The beer is transparent with a copper body. An inch or so of creamy, off-white head sits on top. The aroma brings sweet breads, fruit, malt. Hop character emerges more in the flavor than the aroma, offering a light bitterness mid to late palate. Subtle pine and resin amid a fruity, slightly sweet malt bill. Light to medium in body with soft carbonation. Pretty drinkable.

Can from Flagstaff. Nice amber color with a lasting white head. Aroma reminds me of malted milk with some green hops. Flavor is mild with only a slight hop bite at the finish. Okay.

Type: 22-oz. bomber Glass: Manzanita pint glass From: A Whole Foods in Tempe, Ariz. Price: Est. $5.99 Purchased: May 16, 2013 Consumed: May 30, 2013 Misc.: N/A Poured a caramel copper murky color with 1-2 fingers of khaki-white head, which went away rather quickly. Minimal foggy lacing on the sides. Average-to-below average retention all the way down. Smelled dark fruits, including plum, figs and dates. Also caramel and toffee malts and roasty nuts. Tasted pretty similar to the nose with a bit more maltier feel. Plum, figs, dates, nuts, toast, caramel and toffee. Medium body. Oily texture. Soft carbonation. Abrupt finish. Pretty good beer for my second try from Lumberyard. Iím still new on the ESBís, but I would have it again.
