Brewed in December 2003, draft at Frisco’s in Columbia, MD. Headless. Slightly floral and sugary in the nose. Amber color with gold around the edges. Nice carbonation on the tip of the tongue, citrus, candy sugar, sweet hoppy quality that’s nicely balanced; slightly dry mouthfeel in a medium finish. Quite enjoyable, very drinkable elderly brew.

Draught @ Max’s: Dark amber/ruby colored body with a small white head. The aroma is light hops, spicy/pine, caramel, plenty of chewy malts, and some wood.

Taste is slightly oxidized caramel, light roasted malt, grape, prune, grain, apple, figs. Medium bodied, moderate cabonation, alcohol completely hidden.
