Caytinator (963) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Pint on tap. Mahogany color. no lacing, small head fades off, clear-ish. Nice sweet malty aroma, nice slightly toasty taste with no hop bitterness--middle-of-the-road for the style; points for complexity. They make beer in Nebraska? I’m impressed!
