Tasted Saturday evening after spending much of the day at the regional XC meet for the Midwest region and sitting in sampling homebrews at The Land of the Muddy Waters Homebrew Competition at Blue Cat Brew Pub. Big thanks to Chris Zook for bringing a six pack over to a micro-alumni-pre-party-pre-bars-night-out get together at my house.
Mouthfeel: Lighter bodied, though sufficient in a tacky coating over the lips. Carbonation is strong with a fine microbubble consistency, while not standing apart from the beer. The finish is dry and tannic though perfect in the aid of a crisp refreshing end.
Overall Impression: This is a fantastic beer to start out the winter months. It's not in the slightest overly spiced nor alcoholic (something I found to be hardly an issue). Extremely balanced and palatable while going down easy. Perfect for any occasion...Sipping, party's, dinner etc.
