Pours clear copper brown with a very frothy off white head. Tastes light and malty, like grains, nutty, very light citrus and pine. Light body and low/medium carbonation. Smells like malt, hops, creamy, and nutty.

Aroma is buttery and floral, a bit old. Color is a deep amber with a big fluffy head- points there. Flavor though, leaves a little to be desired. Quite light, not aftertaste, just a quick short shot of malt.

Darkish red brown some head that fades. Aroma of chocolaty nutty roasts. Taste is mostly acidic, same roasty nutty flavors, but not as strong flavored as I’d like to see. Too watery and acidic on the palate. Not too sweet though which is good.

A definite session ale, looks hearty and appetizing, with a nice brown color and persistent, lace-leaving head, but flavor-wise is very mild, maybe too mild, just sort pf something to drink while doing other things. Which is, I guess, the point of a mild session ale. So good.

Tap at Metropolitan. Pours clear brown with a large, creamy off-white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is diacetyl, cookie and toast malt with dates. Flavor is malt dominant with light diacetyl, light hops and bitterness and a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Draft at NHC. Pours a deeper brown with offwhite head. Nose is quite nutty and clean, low esters and toasty with a hint of roast, no hops. On tasting, crisp and clean. Light body, light roast. Again toasty and nutty with a clean finish. Nice mild.
