Light brown with a creamy white head. Smells of grains and malts. Taste is similar to a stout without any intense roasted flavors, very creamy and refreshing. Silky smooth mouthfeel, to be expected on nitro. Overall pretty good sessionable beer with a lot of flavor, this was my first in this style so I wasn't sure what to expect but defiantly enjoyed it.

I have had this beer a couple of times. First on-tap at Hess's tasting room, also at Bruski in Scripps Ranch. One of their beers that I would consider a signature because not many have something like this.
First the smell. The smell is not overly sweet, but you definitely know it has a higher level of malts. The aroma I can describe as butterscotch, warm vanilla, and honey. One might expect that this would be characteristic of a red versus an amber.
The taste is what really shocked me though. The beer is lighter than you might expect because the smell is so malty, with low carbonation and a thin milky texture. A complex body with a light finish reminds me of a high quality root beer float or cream soda type finish. There is a soft, partially nutty taste.
Overall this was my favorite beer tasted there. I really believe that Hess could make this signature beer as it is very unique for what San Diego has to offer.

On tap at Hess Brewing Company in San Diego, CA.
Pours a slightly murky orange-brown with a foamy bone colored head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, grain, and some slight caramel aromas. Taste is much the same with a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate after each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is drinkable but nothing all that exciting.
