Nice copper-red color with a decent head. Very smooth texture with excellent carbonation. Nippy notes of alcohol. Mild bitterness. Sweet smoke nuances.

On draught, this brew has a cloudy copper body w/ a nice balance between bitter & malty. Pretty tasty.

Ernest (7518) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 17, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2004 Draught. Body is medium orange-brown. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, cookie), with a note of brown sugar. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation. Once one of their best, the most recent sample was pretty lackluster.
