64 oz growler poured into a Sprecher nonic. Growler filled at the brewery yesterday. At this moment it's a on-tap beer only.
Thanks to my cousin Dan for bringing this over!
A - From the growler this pours a haze-free, clear, lightly bronzed amber red color. The foam reaches about a finger and is retained fairly well leaving a cream-colored ring, a thin film, and patchy lacing.
S - Grassy, earthy notes abound from the hops used. A touch of floral hints too. Laid-back malt presence that holds it's own but isn't too prominent. Toasty amber aroma with a light caramelized hint to it. Nutty undertones too.
T - It's well-balanced right off the bat. A strong grassy, earthy hop flavor is met by a strong amber, toasty malt balance that results in a crisp and lightly dry flavor.
M - Crisp and refreshing for a red. Medium-light in body and smooth but well-carbonated. Slightly dry with a mild bitterness.
D - Not really a match for Special Amber but it's pretty good. Something I could do half a growler of no problem. Pretty easy drinking and nicely flavored but doesn't stand out in a style saturated by mediocrity.
