On tap in Edwaredsville, IL. From notes.
A- Milky copper color. Not much head, and low retention.
S- This has no nose to it. Hard to detect anything other than a basic hop spice and a watery malt.
T- Starts with a muted hop flavor, with a watery finish. Initially was going to flunk the taste. However, owing to how poor it started, i was not drinking it fast. As it warms, the flavors come out to play a little. there is a nice cherry sweetness, some smoke to the malt and a nice oily hop feel on the tongue, yet the bitterness still is lacking.
M- chalky.not enough carbonation.
O- this is an honest review, who knows maybe the keg was an old tap, or the AC was on too strong in the restaraunt,,, I don't know... but this was not a good beer. if I ever find it again I might re-review as this is going to be a much below average review of this. But its what I was poured.
Serving type: on-tap

Nice appearance and mouthfeel, but the taste left me unimpressed.
If you're a hop-head, you'll like this one. If you like balance or complexity, not so much. (I like balance, so while I can appreciate the resinous, tangy hops, it was too one-dementional for my palate.)
