On tap at BC's Pizza and Beer

A: Pours deep amber with a creamy light tan head that fades and laces well.

S: Caramel malt sweetness up front followed with a little light citrus and some earthiness.

T: Caramel toffee malt sweetness up front, some earthy woodsy notes, a little pine and citrus, orange and grapefruit, maybe even a bit floral on the finish, with a moderate bitterness throughout.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: This one is from right in my backyard, but I can't say it's one of my favorites. Not bad by any means though.

a: its a clear rich caramel amber color with a 2 finger off-white rocky head

s: clean crisp caramel malts, lemongrass, berries, wet cardboard, strawberries, and a fait earthy bitterness

t: sweet smooth caramel, some of those sweet berries i picked up in the nose, big big biscuity bready flavors. there is a very faint tea-leaf & pine bitterness in here at the very end. very very slight bitterness - very slight. finishes with more of the caramel sweetness

m: lighter side of medium. nice amount of carbonation

o: its a super easy drinker. sweet and crisp - maybe a bit too sweet though, almost tastes like corn. but as mentioned, its very easy to drink. i'd prefer a little more of the biscuity flavors in here to balance out the sweetness, but its ok. supremely average, and easy to drink
