Screw-top growler filled at the brewery.

First imperial pint pours with a 1/2" beige head, over the slightly cloudy chestnut brown brew. Head recedes to the rim pretty quickly, with fleeting lace. Aroma is lightly sweet, but overall pretty minimal. Taste begins with a touch of sweetness, (finally) hits some wheat clove notes in the middle, and closes with a somewhat chalky earthy finish. Mouthfeel is soft over the tongue, and drinkability is not bad. Unfortunately, not much stands out here.

I had several pints of this beer during a recent visit to OPA OPA for the SportsnThat banquet.
The beer arrives in a pint glass cold with little tan edge layer of head.
The beer is deep mahogany to cola brown in color with only minimal light passing through the edges of the glass.
The aroma is malty with caramel and toffee mixing with a bit of wheat twang and some light fruitiness, although all of these scents are pretty mild. The beer appears to be a filtered version which would explain the muted nose.
First sip reveals the average boday and gentle rolling carbonation that increase the drinkability of the beer. I could have had these all evening had we stayed longer.
Flavor is similar to nose, some dark fruit mixes with caramel and toffee and a bit of molassess. The flavor is generally sweet and a little more pronounced than the nose. No hint of the ABV anywhere and a very smooth coating texture on the swallow.
This is a solid quaffable brew, just not as fruity or robust in flavor as I had hoped for the beer. Wonder what an unfiltered version would do for me?

Draught @ Southampton: This one poured a clear, reddish-brown color. There was no head on it at all, with no lacing either. There was a lighter aroma to it. What was there were notes of some wheat and fruits. The taste was a bit better than the aroma. There were notes of roastiness, wheat, chocolate, and some fruits. A decent brew.
