A fairly clear copper brown colored brew with a solid off-white head and
great lacing. The aroma is a very subtle grainy malt, not much else. However,
the flavor jumps out with a healthy evergreen hop blended with deep molasses
malt. There's some grass bite with a neat chocolate idea floating around. I
might add a little rye grain as well. Really pretty enjoyable with a medium body
that delivers a very fine, pretty mild carbonation and a slight resin to a
smooth, easy drinking brew. Not bad.

On tap at the Draught House in Austin.

The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma is pretty straight forward with a lot of caramel malt. The flavor is a mix of caramel and toffee malt. I also get some chocolate, earthy and grassy hops and some iced tea notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
