A reddish amber pour with a thin white head. Fairly tart aroma, lots of vinegar. A mild smokiness, some leather, and some residual malt sweetness of bread and toast. The flavor is quite dry and tart. Red wine vinegar, some sweet fruit esters, and toasted malt. There’s a lot of leathery dryness, some grass, and a fair amount of smoke.
