bhensonb (11272) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 21, 2010
Bottle from Bottleworks. Pours rather cola color with a foamy beige head. Aroma is light roast malt, light meaning not a lot, but the roast is pretty dark. Medium body with foamy carbonation. Flavor is not quite burnt malt with a good dose of floral/grassy hop. Finishes burnt malt bitter. Not harsh, just burnt. Seems to get a lot of floral in the finish. Really good.

Bottle shared alexsdad06. Poured a clear brown color with a large frothy off-white head that was mostly lasted and had very good lacing. Good roasted malty and small hop aroma. Medium body with slick smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate well balanced smooth flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good complex session brew.

Bottle. Pours a dark dark brown. Nice sized light colored head. Some very nice roasted malt, some floral hops and maybe a bit of spices on nose. Flavor is a really nice balance of dark malts and smooth hops. Sessionable and very nice!
