[on tap at Local 50, PHI airport] Sweet toffee and stone fruit aroma with pine and faint grapefruit accents. Clear copper under a lacy, white patch. Flavour is a balanced blend of toasty toffee and assertive hops bitterness accentuated by stone fruit and pine. Medium-light body, medium carbonation, fairly crisp.
