This is a very “drinkable” beer, but don’t think of it as simple and boring. With hints of citrus, plenty of rich caramel, and a bitter coffee finish this bottle will satisfy you without having to be too funky. The hops are not overpoweringly bitter, but rather more earthy and subdued. Because of its easy going flair, the Special Ale is ideal with common foods for a comfortable culinary experience.
