Tap at Trinity. Pours a clear brown with thin white head. Settles quickly with thin lacing. Aroma is intensely malty, toffee, nutty, caramel, biscuit/cracker. Flavor is nutty, toasted, toffee, biscuit, with a mildly bitter finish. Nice showcase of malt flavors, interesting. Not sure why it is being classified as a traditional ale. Soft carbonation and light body. A tasty, very malty beer.
