Tap. Slightly off-white head, brownish orange copper hue. Some slight biscuits, lightly sweet tofee malts, and a slight earthy bitterness in the aroma. Flavor is a touch on the sweeter side, and bready with some caramel. Medium to lighter body with subtle carbonation. Not offensive, just not my thing.

True to form and a decent session beer, but nothing too remarkable about it.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2014 Pint poured from tap at World of Beer Arlington. Poured a pretty clear amber color with a medium sized white head. Aroma was mild malts, some bready notes, caramel in there too. Flavor was sweet malts, bready, caramel. Very light. Really drinkable, I’ve been able to use this one as a gateway craft beer with at least two of my friends in just the last few days. I’d say I’d probably pick this one up as a BMC alternative to the more timid of friends who would be more hesitant to try something else.
