Translucent copper with a thin head. The aroma and flavor are both very sweet/malty. There is some slight citrus in the finish, but pretty thin and unmemorable overall.

Imperial pint at Tidewaters in Washington Dulles airport. Pours a copper color with a whispy white head. Aroma is a little metallic with grassy notes, wood light corny malts. Palate is on the lighter side. Decent hoppiness, considering but it does carry that metallic flavor. Finish is a little fruity with a dash of butter. Meh.

Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Light sweet caramel malty aroma with some flowery hoppy hints. The flavor is plain and balanced, with a light malty sweetness and some light floral bitterness. Not awful.

Received this as a present for Christmas so had to have one while playing Wii on Christmas day! Thanks Gayle! Nice aroma with earthy notes and a hint of toffee that lasts for a long time. Finishes so well that I would rate this beer as very drinkable. Two thumbs up! Need to save some for CMB when he comes home in a few weeks

Tap. Murky brown amber orange with a thin white head. Lots of caramel and astringent soapy tea-like hoppiness. Same for the flavor with more if a weird bitterness and toffee. Watery body with tight carbonation. Meh
