Tasted after a 7 miler morning run in which I stopped midway at the farmers market to snack on a loaf of the Mad Farmer's Old World bread. Mmm.
Taste: Taste is sublimely refreshing complete with a basic caramel and breadiness to parallel a lightly toasted malt bill. By midtaste, there is a pronunciation of honey and spice. To finish leaves the palate with a ginger and soft cinnamon flavor. The end is evenly dry and leaves a remaining woodiness to cloy on the back of the throat.
Mouthfeel: Light and highly carbonated, though nothing to deter the flavor complexities. Finish is dry yet as noted above, a cloying gumminess is left to the back of the throat. Crisp!
Overall Impression: A very complex, yet easy drinking beer. the spicing is the highpoint in this due to the fact at different points it leaves one to decipher in many directions - malt, midtaste spice, finish, aftertaste. OR it can simple be consumed on a hot summers day for pure refreshing enjoyment.
