merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - MAR 1, 2011
Bottle pours a clear copper body with a large beige head. Aroma is grapefruit, orange rind, and toasted caramel. Creamy medium body is well carbonated. Taste is well balanced but on the hoppy side for style. Crystal, Cascade, and Simcoe work well here and impart a mintiness to along with the citrus. Toasted caramel barely balances. Very tasty and goes down easy.

Brownish Red, with a big fluffy white head. Caramelly, earthy aroma. Flavor is more caramel, with only faintest of hop bite at the end. Nice rich palate.

This beer hits awesome out of the tap and loses a ton from the bottle. But top notch if you can get on tap anywhere. A great same beer all night at a bar.
