Thank's to fellow Brewer Trevor Krutzfeldt for bringing this back from Mississippi and giving me it to taste. Reviewed after a day spent canning and shrink sleeving our River Rat Root Beer and running home from work. I enjoyed this with stir fried chard, beans and rice.
Taste: The taste exhibits a fine balance between a refreshing dryness in the end and a very flavorful malt sweetness up front. I can draw caramel and biscuit malt immediately from the start. To follow is a honey/brown sugar flavored sweetness. Falling into that mix is the roasted nut flavor that I was expecting from this beer, and it goes on to round out into the bittersweet finish with a sharp CO2 flavor and a refreshing bite. The beer finishes with an abrupt end and a clean flavor.
