It’s a traditional amber color and a big, malty lager — one of the maltiest brews I’ve had in a long time, sweet and sticky with a nose that recalls a touch of cider vinegar. The hops are quiet in this brew — if you’re looking for a bitterness bomb, try elsewhere. The finish is mouth-coating and fairly simple. Sweet, orange-inflected, and almost worthy of the dessert course.
