On tap @ Napa Smith. Clear Amber pour with white foam. Strong caramel and toffee malt/sugar notes. A little floral and earthy hop character, and a bit of apple esters. Certainly on the sweet side as well. A slight earthy and woody bitterness. Maybe sort of grassy and husky, too. Fair amount of caramel flavor and toast. Okay.
