Pint on tap at the Bearden location. Clear light copper with a lasting film of cream. Mild nose of caramel malt and dry grass. Tastes of spicy toasted grain and a nice finish of earthy, dry grassy hop. Light-medium body is to the malty side as it should be, but well balanced by the finish and is an easy drinker.

JStax (2860) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - OCT 31, 2011
Poured from a bottle. Appearance is a dark copper with no head to speak of. Aroma is lightly smoky and malty with a faint hop presence. Reminds me of the smell of wet leaves. In the taste I find carrot cake, dusted with ground up cacao nibs. Mouthfeel is a bit sharp with a medium finish of bitterness and roasted malt lingering on the tongue.
