Draught @ Brewpub: This one poured a hazy, dark amber color. There was a good sized frothy off-white head on it. It left lots of lacing. The nose is a bit mild. Some sweet caramel notes as well as a touch of floral hops. The taste is OK. Caramel malt with just a bit of sweetness. Maybe a touch of roastiness in the background. Barely dry finish. Nothing special, but very easy to drink.

Nice amber color,small off white head that had a decent hang time and managed to leave a decent lace behind.The aroma was malty and lightly citrus,with a mild hop presence.I like this brew,malty flavor with a nice citrus taste and just a bit of a tangy sensation coming from it as well.The hops are nicely done with just enough to make it interesting.A very nice and very drinkable brew

Pours a darker reddish burnt auburn color, with frothy rocky head that dissipates pretty quickly. Pretty straight forward here, not suprisingly complex, just simple and drinkable. Lots of ample roastiness and some spicy hopsm turning dry in the finish, with just a hint of dried fruit.
