Tap at the pub. Poured a light brown. Nutty aroma, sweet and malty. This was a little light in mouth feel, but had a smoothness to make it a possible session brew.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Much better than I expected it to be. It has a nice smokey brown flavor and a lighter than expected color. Also, a sweet and smokey aroma. I’m a fan - and now I see that it’s fairly local to boot.
