Had this on tap at a Thai restaurant in San Diego. Pours a deep amber color with a small creamy white head. Aroma is light wet dog and some caramel malts. Not a whole lot going on there. Flavor follows with big time malt kicks, caramel, biscuits, with some definite pine bitter to balance alongside. Mostly highlighting the malts but definitely not a super sweet beer. Slick mouthfeel with medium-to-high carbonation. Overall this was a decent beer, and pretty bold for the style.

Nice amber color, completely transparent with a slightly off-white head. Very malt forward aroma on this brew. It smells like fresh mash with some very apparent yeasty characteristics. I didn’t really pick up on any hops. The taste of this beer is very mellow. It would be a good session ale, not particularly exciting but very refreshing.
