Bottle from LtDan. Thanks! Pours a plum orangish red with a small sudsy white head. Nose is grainy water, light vegetal notes, no hops. Flavor is more developed with some sweeter fruity flavors, light bitterness. Ends a little ashy.

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.
