(draft @ Rock Bottom Pittsburgh - Homestead, PA) Nice rich brown color with a thin layer of tan foam. Aroma is sweet and nutty with some floral notes mixed in. Nutty taste with a hoppy finish. Leaves a pleasant sweetness on the tongue. Very smooth and pleasant.

Served on cask in a pint glass.

Appearance: Deep brown/red, medium foamy light caramel head...very pillowy. Good lacing.

Smell: Very minimal aroma. Some roasted malts and hops. Almost smells oily?

Taste: A slight fruitiness up front quickly followed with a caramel & toffee flavor in the middle. Finishes pretty smooth with a mild bitterness. A lot of different mild flavors, but nothing that truly stands out.

Mouthfeel: Thinner than expected.

Drinkability: Quite drinkable thanks to the smoothness of the finish.

Served as a sample at Rock Bottom in Homestead. The color was brown, with a white head. The smell was a nice dry malt. The taste was a very nice malt with a very noticable citrusy hoppiness in the beer. Mouthfeel was average. As for drinkability, could have quite a few.

The best of the 4 regular beers at Rock Bottom. A very nice maltiness with a good hop leads to a beer that I'd likely have again.
