bhensonb (11528) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Bottle from PC Market of Choice in Ashland, OR. Pours clear copper with a slight creamy beige head. Aroma is light roast caramel/brown sugar with a suggestion of floral. Making me think almost barleywine. Near full bodied. It has a slick malty feel. It has some hop that might be citrus or floral. It certainly finishes more bitter than not. It’s a bit hard to separate flavors, but it certainly is a very tasty thing.
