I had this one at their outpost on Broadway & 15th.

It was served in a Guinness style glass. The beer is amber with gold highlights. There is a skim of beige head.

Aroma of caramel with some cascade-pine notes.

Taste tracks the smell, mid-range bitterness and caramel undertones. Classic old school apa. Taste is comforting.

The mouth could be turned-up a notch but it works.

I enjoyed this trip down memory lane.

Serving type: on-tap
