500 mL bottle, $3.99 Cheers, Carrollton, GA, USA. Very nice chocolate colored pour with a nice bubbly head that recedes to give a film on the surface. Very little lacing.
Big caramel malts in the nose but there is a lack of sweetness in the aroma that one usually finds. The tastes reflect that in as much as the caramel notes are there, but it is a bit drier and more bitter than some of the style. Not fully malted up.
A little thin in the mouth and lacks the sugar overtones that often accompany these malty beers. A nice beer that is certainly drinkable, but for me it’s a litle light for the style.
