An amber and a decent white head with some malt and hops aroma. Fresh, good bitterness and medium mouthfeel and appropriately carbonated. Clean taste, well-balanced, just fairly run-of-the-mill. In a word, serviceable.

nimbleprop (6066) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 19, 2009
12oz bottle pours a translucent, deep caramel brown with a frothy, creamy slightly tan head. The beer settles like a glass of Guinness. Very nice looking. Aroma is fairly mild, some distinct caramel sweetness, a little dusty, very earthy, a touch peaty. Flavor is big on the sweetness up front, caramel, toasted malts, sweet malts, a touch of orange. Finish is a little watery with both some lasting sweetness and some lasting bitterness.
