On tap at Brewski’s in Fayetteville, AR. Pours a clear, amber-brown colored body with a finger-width, creamy and frothy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is lightly sweetened caramels with a touch of toasted bread, a light fruitiness, some grains, toast, and a light earth. Flavor is similar. Lightly sweetened, grainy caramels with a light fruitiness, touches of toasted bread, a few florals, and a light earth. Finishes clean and dry with a light, earthy and lightly toasted bitterness with some fruit notes and a touch of sweetness. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a light-medium body and a medium-high carbonation. Overall, a pretty standard brown ale that is well made and well balanced. Easy drinking and pretty enjoyable with no discernible flaws.

onceblind (4067) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Clear dark amberish brown with a soapy caramel nose and earthy nuttiness. The flavor is sweet-ish and nutty-chocolaty with a little bitterness and dryness. Kinda grainy.
