A nice tasting beer. Nice and malty, which I like. It would definitely taste great sitting around a winter fire.

BlackHaddock (8097) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2018
12 oz can into a Lowenbrau (Munchen) stemmed tulip glass on 15th Jan 2018 in California while on holiday. Brown bodied, sediment evident, lacing on the off-white, but thin head. No fireworks here, no sparkle or pop, bang wallop and a distinct lack of flare. However the beer has a malty and semi-sweet nature and it's alcohol level suits it, no need for every beer to be high in it's ABV. Sadly this beer came after a couple of 'heavy hitters' in the tasting session, so I might be slightly unfair in my assessment in it's worth. Scored objectively.

IndianaRed (5216) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 17, 2016
On Tap hazy chestnut, full dense tan head. Caramelized brown malt notes, and a litel holiday spice. Plenty of bitterness for a brown. Aggressive clean and big.
