On tap at Hamiltons. Pours with a deep brownish-red body topped by a thin, off-white head with little lacing. It has a slightly sweet and floral hop aroma with a touch of malt in the background. The flavor is slightly sweet yet slightly sour and bitter with an underlying over ripe fruit note and a slight floral note. Medium to full bodied and warming.
