From the Saranac line from Matt Brewing of Utica or, as the chamber of commerce calls it, Beautica. A small growler picked up at a Wegmans somewhere in the North Country of New York. Surprisingly - but I don't know why - an attractive dark orange-amber with a billowy white lacy head. In the mouth, after a few days of IPAs, this one is a relief - a creamy, slightly sourish even perhaps smoky brew maybe from a touch of black malt. The hops is mostly twiggy and fairly recessed.
Plenty of malt with some graininess but a just little more cloy from the sweet than I prefer but just a bit. Some raisin and pear in the malt. Add just one more note of another hop in there balancing that sweet malt and I would be quite pleased. But I could be too snobby and for the price of maybe three bucks for 32 oz., this is great value.
