Light walnut color with a pillowy off-white head. Aroma is herbal, earthy hops and peppery grain. Flavor is big piney hops up front and rye spice fading into a creamy malt background. Long finish of piney, earthy bitterness. Medium to full bodied with a creamy palate and moderate carbonation. A good beer to enjoy while watching the Bruins dismantle the Maple Leafs at the Boston Garden.
