      Overall Impression (2½)
      Brown, moderate carbonation, OK head. Spicy aroma, smoky, caramelly. Lots of brown maltiness, pretty good hop balance, not a lot of body. Thin sweet finish. A good beer, not a great beer. "Contains not more than 2% alcohol by weight. Brewed in honor of the Colorado Shakespeare Festival." Thanks to Mike Bodzioch for sending this beer to me!
