On tap at the Iron Hill in North Wales. Waiter said only a 1/2 barrel was brewed and they expect it to kick fast. Poured a deep orange/amber/brown color with a very small sized off white head. Aromas of corn and light molasses. Tastes of corn, molasses, toasted malts and caramel. Malty body. Also had a graininess to it. Some lacing left on the glass. Not a bad beer, but too much corn for my tastes.
