On tap, poured clear reddish orange with white head. Aroma had some slight notes of toffee, caramel and biscuit, touch of earth and spice in there as well. Taste was a bit better, with more pronounced spice, toffee notes in there along with the grass and biscuit, finished fairly clean with a slight lingering spice note.

12oz bottle, bottled 8/6/12. On the back, this says "malt liquor"... Thin khaki head, fades to minimal. Bubbles on the side of the glass. Totally clear copper color. Smooth carbonation, on the lighter side. More dry finish. Lightly sweet bitter taste. Spicy hops present, toasty malts. Kind of a fruity taste. Cherry? interesting way to do an oktoberfest
