Draft at the brewpub - Poured a slightly hazy reddish brown in color with color with a small off-white head. Aroma is medium of floral hops with light malts underneath. Flavor is fairly heavy of floral and citrus hops with a bit of roasty malts in support. Finish is a good mix of roasted malts and plenty of hop flavor. A decent mild... I can hardly wait to taste its parent, the wee heavy.
