UPDATED: JUL 13, 2014 Sampled on draft at the Las Vegas location this beer poured a murky dark amber color with a large creamy orange-white head that lingered forever and left great lacing. The aroma was sweet and yeasty with golden fruits. The flavor was sweet and tangy golden fruits, sugar, bread dough and a touch of booze. Long finish. Full body. Excellent.
