Draft at brewpub. Copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Light sweet citrus aroma. Light to medium body with soft carbonation. Medium balanced flavor with the same balanced finish of moderate duration. Good brew that appears to be a local pick.

Last stop (and final beer) of the return trip during ABA Beer Tour ’07. Sampled on draught at the brewpub restaurant in downtown Rapid City, South Dakota. Pours a clear coppery amber brew with a decent off-white head that slowly dissolves and leave behind a good lacing. Aroma of rich caramel malt, candi sugar, some citrus with some grassy hops. Taste is fruity sweet, heavy alcohol, medium bodied and lightly carbonated. Flavors picked up include caramel malt, light peach and lemon zest. Finish is soft, slightly sweet with a peppery bitter and alcohol burn aftertaste.
