The last of the camp out leftovers bought for a friend from Louisiana.

Pours with a rolling, tan head. Color is amber of course. Smells of caramel and tea. Tastes of more caramel with spicy notes in the middle and sublte apricot at the finish.

This is a well crafted, smooth and simple beer, and there's nothing wrong with that.

Pours a golden amber hue with a wispy one finger head and sporadic lacing,the smell is butterscotch,toffee and hints of fruit,the mouthfeel is medium bodied with above moderate carbonation just a little too much for me with tastes of butterscotch and toffee malts and finished with a herbal hop earthiness and overall yeah its alright but pretty pedestrian cheers.
