Draught at the brewpub. Light amber color with a creamy head. Lightly rich butterscotch and malty caramel aroma. Rich caramel and toffee malt flavors balanced by lightly spicy hops and just enough bitterness. Finishes a little sweet, but still easily drinkable. Nice balanced flavors overall.

Toasty with a hint of caramel and nutty notes. Light english hops - pepper and earth, herbal. Pours light hazy amber, not much head or lace. The flavor is lightly sweet with caramel, toasted malts, earthy spicy hops. A touch herbal. Light and easy to drink. Somewhat with an english feel.
