On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.

Poured a dark copper hue with a one finger foamy white head. Was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a soft toasted malt and grassy hop.

The taste consisted of soft round caramel, clean grassy hop and light nuttiness.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a standard sessionable psle ale.
