Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation.
Bitterness never really develops, leaving this too sweet to drink much of. Nice mouthfeel though. Ughsmash (7502) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 10, 2007
On tap at Ram - Rosemont, IL. Poured a clear lighter coppery orange with a very light dusting of off-white head. Aroma picked up some caramel surrounded by woodsy notes.. some floral.. sweet overall and a touch toasty. Flavor picked up lightly smoked drawn caramel, some sweetener, leafy hoppage, and some alcohol... not very well-made, but drinkable enough. Light-medium bodied and thicker on the back-end.. rather poor flow to it. Not so good. nuplastikk (6630) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 6, 2016
