Unfiltered orange-brown-tan. Thin oily white head. Semi spicy dry lager, this is a great, unique session beer. Mellow medium bodied, malt centered. Mild off tastes, covered in tropical nutmeg(?) and other odd fruit tones. All together OK.

Draft in a flight at the brewpub. This one was wholly unremarkable to me. A little hoppy, a little malty, but no real defining characteristics. Poured a light amber color. Meh.
