Widget can. Pours a clear amber with a heavy dark ruby cast. After the initial gas rush, the head is normal. Lacing and retention are above normal. Light nose of caramel. No effervescence on the finish. Light medium body, yet slick. Laid back balanced flavor profile. It begins with a light caramel sweetness that flows into a mild bitterness with a touch of smoke. As it warms, dark fruit notes are there, but subtle. Smooth finish with a touch of hop flavor. A mineral like taste lingers. A solid offering, but not in the class of Founder's Dirty Bastard.

12 oz bottle. Poured in a glass. Medium head, dissipates in a minute or two. Dark amber color. Smell of light flowers or herbs. Malty taste with trace of toasted nuts. Leaves an earthy oak aftertaste.
