Poured from my kegerator into a Firestone pint glass.

a. Dark copper, orange like color. Crystal clear with a small head. Head vanishes quickly.

s. Not much here. Sweett malt and faint hops.

t. Some vanilla, woody flavors. More malt than hops. Some toffee.

M. Light carbonation, medium bodied. Kind of watery.

d. Goes down quite easily. Could, and did, drink several pints per sitting.

Very pretty orage-amber color with an unfortunately petty head. The smell is quite sweet and malty with hints of nut and banana. These however, are lost in the flavor. The flavor is quite woodsy, with a soft hop and sweet malt flavor, but the complexity is lost in the rustic background. Overall, not a bad brew. Not a great brew, but it's wide availability makes it a good drinking beer on many a night out.
