3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a slightly cloudy, dark golden copper color with dark amber edges and a half finger off-white head that quickly settles into a thin, lasting ring. Sporadic spotty lacing.
Bland aroma with subtle spice and earthy hops. Dominated by sweet malt with hints of rye, caramel, toffee and dark fruit.
Medium bodies with a surprising hop forward flavor profile followed by a sweet malt backbone. Crisp, spicy hop bite lingering over caramel malt sweetness, spicy rye, toffee, bread and dark fruit notes. Easy to drink with a subtle hop component countering the strong malt presence.
