On tap at the Sunset Grill & Tap.
Dark brownish copper with a thin but steady head, clarity is fine.
Aromas of toasted grain and mild hop mirror the flavor, crisp wheat and bready ... very smooth. Suggestions of pears and vanilla come to mind. Quite malty but to big of a body for a summer brew. Very mild hopping though the palate does dry out in the end.
A tasty switch from the usual pale summer brews.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from can into Oskar Blues pint glass a semi-cloudy amber, with huge off-white head. No discernible lace.
Nose is nicely toasted grains and malty. Kinda sweet, too. Maybe a slightly aged can?
Taste is smooth and malty-sweet, with plenty of toasty grain flavors. This is an easy-to-drink beer, light and flavorful. A solid and worthy warm weather brew.
Serving type: can
