Draft at the brewery. Pours a dark ruby red color, very little head, webbing on the glass. Caramel malt aroma with hints of citrus and light fruit. Taste is very light caramel malt mostly, like a light scotch ale. Slight fruitiness comes through. Finish leaves a slightly odd herbal aftertaste. Ok beer, nothing I would drink again.

Taste is hoppy and malty initially but the malts dominate as it warms up a bit. Theres a real nasty aftertaste.

Tap. Brown with red hue. Malty sweet aroma. No head/ lacing. A touch thin. Crisp and a little drying. Decent.

Pailhead (4417) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - FEB 15, 2005
On tap: Light citrus aroma. Dark transparent amber with an off-white head. Very watery and thin. Just a real light citrus hop finish and even lighter nuttiness. Just not much going on with this one.
