Draft. Pours amber orange with an off white head. Light nutty sweet malty aroma with some grainy hints. the flavor is balanced and relatively clean, with pale malts, some nutty sweetness, a hint of earthiness, and a light bitterness. Good stuff.

Growler filled at Big Z and consumed later the same day. Pours a deep amber brown that allows light to pass with a moderate tan head that lasted until mid-glass and left considerable lace. Pleasant aroma of malt. The flavor is primarily malt followed by some moderate hops bitterness. Medium bodied. No problems.

Surprised I am the first to rate this...@ EJ Phair on tap. Strong sticky malt. Light on the hop flavor but pretty heavy on the bitterness. Noticeably, but not necessarily negatively, sticky in texture, this has a whole bunch of good malt in it, but maybe too much.
