On tap @ Swamp Head. Slightly hazed orange pour with a white head. Some bready malt along with a big dose of zesty orange, some lemon, and canned peaches. Nicely sweet without being too much, though it’s kind of still on the caramel side rather than more bready, like I’d prefer. Hints of dried pineapple on the finish.
