This brew is a bit on the medium-dark side for color, has a great aroma of malti-goodness, but flows across the palate smooth, crisp and refreshing, with just a touch of yeastiness and balanced hopiness; the finish is smooth with some nuttiness and a balanced level of hops that is neither too bitter or lacking. Overall the balance on the beer was quite well done, the combination of subtle fruit and malt, mixed with the refreshing clean style from the lagering makes for a great drinking beer.
My only issue is that at $22 it's pricey, but that's Allagash and that's what you pay for good beer! 3/3 Well Done!
