The beer pours nicely with abundant head but not enough to overflow the glass. The sweet maltiness hits the tongue initially before quickly fading to a mild hop taste ahead of a slightly dry finish. Mild fruitiness is noticeable. The mouthfeel is smooth and there is moderate carbonation. A rich Scottish lace lines the glass as its contents disappear. A most excellent beer that I last drank in May during a tour of the Denver brewery. Available in Asheville as part of the 12-pack brewery sampler. Recommended.
