On tap at Coopers Tavern Madison. A good looking pour into a tulip glass, with an inch of (fast dissipating) head and reddish cloudy color. This serving might be too cold, with almost no discernible aroma.

Very nice in the mouth. A sweetness levened by perfectly sharp carbonation, which contrasts with the first time I had this (@ Brickhouse Barbecue) where the pour was too warm and low on carbonation, leaving the effect overly sweet.

There's sufficient complexity in the nut and bitter flavors.
