Crisp, bright aroma, with a mild malt sweetness. Clean taste, without much detectable hop flavors. Smooths out into nice broad light malt taste with a bit of crispness. Pleasant, but something I would fight someone over if it was the last one in the cooler.
Sweet hop aroma, almost raw. Sweet taste that immediately transitions from the raw hop aroma to a smooth grapefruit-like taste, without the bite. Very smooth from a bitterness perspective, but a lot of different tastes lurking around the edges. Interesting.
Thin head that fizzles down quickly. I can smell the dark makes and spice aroma with the glass sitting a foot away from my nose. Aroma up close is not as strong as I would’ve thought- nice mellow dark malts. Full flavor, with a zing of cinnamon spice cutting through the dark malts, then quickly disappearing. Aftertaste is fairly mild dark malt. The 8.1% ABV is hidden well, with no detectable alcohol burn.
