mahogany pour, light head. very light citrus aroma. buttery flavor with a hidden sweetness that emerges to compliment the easy hop flavor. a touch woody in the finish, nice citrus and grass hop undertones, very light ipa. an easy drinker that won’t scare anyone away.

BBB63 (5941) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 2, 2005
Cask at the pub with argo0, MRomero548, and Degarth...once we found it:

A hazed unfliltered coppery hue with small lace. The aroma has notes of apricot, apple, bready malts, and floral hops. A zesty grapefruit and apple twang with some caramel and rye characteristics and a malty midesection. There is however a noticeable diacetyl nature to the brew that keeps it from being much better. The feel is smooth has expected with some metallic notes on the aftertaste. I liked it but then again I like cask bitters. (FYI, this place has a GREAT selection of single malt scotch!)
