On tap at the brewpub. Dark amber with a medium off white head that has a beautiful thick creamy consistency. The foam leave lovely lacing behind in the glass. Like the nut brown from here, there’s not much aroma, if anything a slight whiff of malt, which is not what you’d expect. Perhaps this is indicative of the Great Hop Shortage of 2008 that has been much ballyhooed. Has a harsh bitter bite that conjures up roasted barley, but no floral or citrus tones. Not my cup of tea.
