12 oz. bottle poured into a tumbler at B's Po Boy, Fountain Square, Indianapolis, IN

A- Caramel chestnut with a slight haze in the body. Yellowish/light tan head, with some great rings of lacing.

S- Dry citrus rind. Slight caramel maltiness.

T- Snappy citrus, dry hop. A little sweetness, caramel to backup the hop character.

M- Medium body. Carbonation is smooth. Dry finish, bitterness is moderate and pleasant.

O- A great ale. I've been lucky enough to be able to drink this beer a lot, and I have finally reviewed it.
