Tasted on draft in various different pubs in my location. A reasonable ale, which is usually well-priced. A good all-rounder but nothing special.

tmoreau (2829) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2014
20 oz. cask serving at John’s Restaurant & Tavern in Winfield, IL., showing a cloudy, orange color, with very persistent, silky, soft white froth, and an equally lasting, blanket of lacing. The aroma was fruity & slightly tart, with hints of sulfur that came off as a combination of chemical, metal, & rust. Light bodied, with low to no effervescence, the taste seemed thin & washed out, with some Kool-Aid like sweetness, mild tartness & spice, and a low, earthy & lingering bitterness. A fair palate cleanser at best.
