Pours a clear amber brown on tap with thin ring of off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of diacytel again, buttery and malty. Taste is more toward the noble earthy hop and malty toastiness, again diacytel is covered. Meh, one of the better ones.

Pint at the brewpub. Looks pretty darn red without any head formation. This is malt leaning ale with flavors of caramel and biscuits, maybe just a grassy note here and there. Very inoffensive even for this style. I don’t have much to say about it.
