Draft at the tasting room. Pours deep amber with a beige head. Sweet caramel and faint crystal malts, fruity and earthy hops, and some candy sweetness. Not bad, but just a touch too heavy on the sweet malt character for my taste.

Tap @ Hamilton’s. Pours a clear, deep reddish amber with a very small beige ring. Faint nose of pine, resin, and a touch of caramel malt. Flavor was much of the same with a bit more of a piny kick on the finish.
