Amber, with a white head. Creamy, malty toasty aroma. Smooth and bready, with a touch of hop bite in the finish. Definately more of a session ale. Sampled at Asheville Brewgrass 2007.

Draught at the brewpub. Pours amber with ivory head. The aroma is caramel and slight grass with some toast. The flavor is slightly toasty with some lemongrass twang. Very distant caramel sweetness lurks behind it. The flavor remains level, and doesn’t change into the finish.

Transparent amber pour with a light offwhite ring that laces the glass down. Sweet malty nose. Boisterous caramel and toffee notes, mixed with some weird light tortilla corn. This turns paler and more biscuit-like toward the finish. Adding decent bitters to the finish helps it from becoming slightly cloying. The body is medium, although could be cleansing, depending on the beginning or end of the pull. The odd pairings going on here makes for a "just ok" brew.
