tap at brewpub 28-oct-2011. Amber with small head. Pretty mild pepper beer, light barrel. It’s a style that I don’t really appreciate much, but this isn’t bad.

On tap at Founders brewpub, pours a clear golden amber with a thin head, the aroma has a slight amount of pepper, the flavor has a sweet and oaky front end but has a slight burn in the finish, pretty boring overall though, nothing exciting.
