Draft at the brewery, served in a flight. Pours a clear orange with an off-white head that settles into a film and leaves a single streak of lace in the glass. Notes of peanuts, toast, caramel, leaves, grass, and straw. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a malty mouthfeel that finishes toasty. Good amber ale.

On tap @ Napa Smith. Clear Amber pour with white foam. Strong caramel and toffee malt/sugar notes. A little floral and earthy hop character, and a bit of apple esters. Certainly on the sweet side as well. A slight earthy and woody bitterness. Maybe sort of grassy and husky, too. Fair amount of caramel flavor and toast. Okay.
