On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.

Poured a murky farm amber hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention ad lacing.

The smell featured a light caramel and a leafy citric hop.

The taste was a bit loose with a crisp crystal malt and leafy cascade hop.

The mouthfeel was toward the lighter side of the style.

Overall a tasty brew that very much resembled an unrefined homebrew.

Serving type: on-tap

A_Dark copper bordering on brown. Rich cream colored off head. A nice cap lingers as the beer as drained. Sticky lacing.

S_Roasted grain, a bit of caramel and a vague hoppiness

T_Roasted grain upon first sip. This is followed by a bit of chocolate, charcoal and dried fruit. Finish is nicely bitter with a resinous pine cone quality. This balances the initial sweetness quite well.

M_Stickier than I was expecting but with the perfect amount of tight carbonation to push through it. Dry mouth feel.

O_This is a better version of Fat Tire. Well balanced and a nice drinking beer
