Tried some over the weekend: The color blew my mind...it's a gorgeous deep amber. I was expecting it to be sweet and nasty a la Grainbelt Nordeast, but it wasn't, and definitely had more bite to it. I'll try to come back with some more detailed tasting notes.
I don't think your typical Bud drinker will like it.
I can appreciate the historical context of the recipe, but I won't go out of my way to have another.
