Flavor is toasty wood up front, some caramel, light toffee, bread crust, light lactose, light nutty notes, soft water, faint leather and light spicy, herbal and citrus hops. Light to medium body, soft, creamy entry, light, sharp carbonation drier finish. Pretty good, it has an interesting, well fitting mouthfeel.

Draft was flat with no legs. Deepest red I've seen in an amber. Really cool. I think the flavor was lacking, maybe an old keg??
