Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting.
Body is medium to dark amber.

Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean.
Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation.
Quite poor...lots of off notes (not fully fermented, diacetyl, etc.) and overly sweet and syrupy. Nice apperance but that’s about it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
on tap @ Prospector’s / Denai Nat’l Park AK --- Clear bright copper color, solid white head cover, thick bands of lace. Taste is caramel malt that grows through the swallow to a finish that has enough hops to balance, but hardly enough to qualify to be called an IPA. Actually, a solid brew, but of questionable heritage.
