Sampler from the hand pump. Pours a translucent golden amber with an average creamy off white head. Aroma was toasty, nutty, some sweet caramel, light citrus hops and grains. Flavors of the same...actually a nice balance of the malts and hops. Liked the way how this one came together.

Poured dark red with a sizable tan head. Smelled like caramel, grain and roasted barley. Toasty taste which was smooth but one dimensional. Ok.
