Reviewed from notes. On tap at the DC location.
Pours a moderate copper color with a light white head and not too much lacing. The nose is some slight bread with a bit of sweetness. Mild caramel notes. The taste isn’t really much other than a bit of light bread. Light to medium body with good carbonation. No faults, but pretty plain and unremarkable.
