A: darker end of the brown spectrum with a nice tan head. Tight carbonation bubbles with substantial lacing

S: Citrus hops with a nutty caramel backbone.

T: Nice hops up front with a nutty backbone. A perfect balance between the two.

M: A medium light body with a bit of a creamy clean finish.

O: I typically don't gravitate towards brown ales as they often leave me disappointed, and I had even high expectations as this was named after a Steve McQueen. I was not let down, this may be my favorite brown ale. All the elements of a brown ale with a FFF twist of citrus hops.
