On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear ruby with a thin white head. Nutty malt, a bit of toffee and caramel. Medium-bodied, nutty malt, a touch of toast. Crisp and easy drinking, malt and a touch of bitterness into the finish.

On tap at Smokestack. Reddy amber coloured pour with a lasting g cream coloured head. Aroma is earthy nutty grains, raisin, dirt / earth, cakey malts. Flavour is composed of earthy nutty malts, raisin bread, nutty, some mineral. Quite authentic mild. Palate is pretty high gassy carbonation. Light sugar. Passable.

From cask at smokestack - delicious malty sweetness with touch of fruit but not too sweet. Prefer cask pour... More complex flavor profile without too much carbonation and warmer serving temp.

cubs (10636) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 7, 2014
On tap @ the brewery during San Francisco 7/7/14 beer tour. Pours a reddish orange appearance with a tan head. Some diacetyl, caramel, and toasted malt in the nose. Moderately night carbonation. Some more butter in the flavor. Mild toffee and toast. A touch of fruit. The butter isn’t overwhelming and I think acceptable in small doses for the style. Fine.

Quite good mild session beer. Perfect pairing with some excellent BBQ at the new brewery in Dogpatch! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mcberko (17854) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 24, 2013
On tap at Magnolia, pours a clear dark amber with a small beige head. Aroma is very subtle, with some very slightly caramel-tinged toasted malt. Flavour brings out toasted bready malt, very very dry caramel accents, and some dry red fruity notes. Highly drinkable, bready, and dry caramely. Good stuff.

On tap at the Pub, August 2013. Clear reddish/copper with a medium head. Aroma and taste of light roasted malt, nuts, toffee and some fruit. Soft and easy to drink. The finish was dry. A solid one.

10 ounce sample on tap at the brewpub last weekend. Very faint aroma with a light nuttiness, and a light sweetness. Not much else. Transparent ruddy-amber body with a small, off-white head present. Starts a little carbonated with a mild spiciness, too. Becomes a little nutty in the middle with very light toasted malts. A little overly-carbonated and spritzy for me, though.
