12 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy rusty copper with a small beige head. Lots of sediment floating all over. Aroma of rye, bread, malt and grains. Taste of mild fruit, light rye, malt and grains. A bit on the watery side. Nuffield (4185) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 28, 2010
This was quite good and a good discovery. Not incredibly dark, but a nice rich brown hue. A number of layers of woody, caramel, chewy fruit notes, in a sort of winter ale concoction. Decent palate and mostly remarkable for its yummy flavors. Very drinkable and delicious. Bottle.
