Had this on tap in Cedar's @ Foxwood's Casino.
Appearance: A fine looking ale without any outsanding characteristics.
Smell: Very lightly malty.
Taste: Was not offensive but somewhat watery and malty, this beer is not overwhelming.
Mouthfeel: Easy in the mouth and going down but too thin.
Drinkabilty: This beer will bore me after a few sips.
Serving type: on-tap

A- Clear amber color with a soapy, quickly dissipating, 1/2 finger head. Not much lacing.
S- Caramel, cracker, bread, a touch of orange, ripe apple, and something that reminds me of fresh hop funk. It seems like there may be some cinnamon in there, too.
T- Mirrors the nose pretty closely, but at times has a nice sour quality that comes through. Big bready, slightly charred aftertaste. Some peppery notes show up as well.
M- Medium light body. Not overly drying.
O- This one was pretty good. Mostly malt driven, but the hop characteristics added nice character. On the lighter side of the spectrum in all categories, but very easy drinking and sessionable.
Serving type: bottle
