Bottle from Bottleworks. Pours ruddy copper with not much of a head. Light malt aroma - not much else. Medium minus body with mild, foamy carbonation. Flavor is caramel, but not much hop. It’s a flavorful little thing, but it’s rather mild in all aspects.

Bottle at Taste Restaurant. Red brown, almost honeylike in appearance, with no head. Slightly funky smell, lactic, yeast, barley. Odd taste. Malt, yeast, slightly peppery taste, with a strange bready linger.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a nice clear reddish amber. Nose is sweet with some darker nutty malts, very slight hops. Taste is slightly sweet initially with earthy malts well-balanced with some floral hops. A decent brew.

Really not much aroma, except for a hint of caramel. Wow this has a lot of malt, tastes like you’re eating it. Too much for me.

On cask (dry hopped) at Jolly Roger Taproom. Pours hazy copper with a nice soapy white head. Aroma is citrus hops and brown sugar. Tastes mostly the same, but stronger, and with a little more caramel and grass. Nice smooth mouthfeel with a mostly sweet malty, slightly hoppy finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ the brewpub. Pours clear copper with off white head and some nice lacing. It has a pleasing malty aroma of roasted malts, caramel and nuttiness to go along with a faint hint of buttered bread. The taste has a nice mix of roasted malts, caramel and mild nuttiness. I also get some sweet molasses and a hint of pine hops wondering around deep in the background. Tasty malty brew with enough roasted malt dryness and mild hoppiness to keep the varied malty sweetness in check.
