      Overall Impression (3)
      Amber, moderate carbonation, bottle-conditioned*. Dark fruity aroma. Medium body, mildly bitter, plenty of hop flavor.
      *An email correspondent has informed me that this beer is not in fact bottle-conditioned, and that the sediment I found was not yeast. I'll have to try to find a fresh bottle!
