Tap with nitro at RNH, Nyc. Clear copper color, creamy brownish head. Aroma has toffee and even some coffee toasted notes. Light to medium-bodied. Creamy palate of course. Light toffee, even a bit unclean feeling, maybe from tap? Grassy light hops and some fruityness. Dissapointing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted on 5/26/12 from a growler, thanks to Nick. Pours clear amber with a thin white head that leaves thin lace. The nose is nice bread malt balanced by some spicy hops. The flavor is a bit more assertive with a bit of sourdough bread and more hops spice and bitterness. The body is light with average carbonation and a long sourdough bread and bitter hops finish.
