Milder than I would have preferred, but nicely done in the same sense, quite well balanced. Malty, and full of rich fruitiness, perhaps some spearmint, that I am sure has something to do with a hop characteristic that I just cannot put my finger on. Definitely quenches the thirst.

unfiltered dark ruby brown, no head, sticky lacing. like a mild version of the hop on with a little more unbalanced bitterness.

A brown color with a small head. The flavor was typical of an amber...some citrus, hops and a little bitterness.
