Keg @ Beer Run. The pour’s deep amber with a small head. Strong caramel on the nose, stewed oranges. Moderate grapefruit. The taste is moderately floral hops. Cantaloupe, grapefruit, orange fruit salad. Caramel and marmalade slathered toast. Medium body, sticky and sweet. Soft carb. Overall, way too sweet. Total caramel bitter bomb.
