Pours with almost no head. Light carbonation but it keeps the carbonation rather well throughout.
Sweet aroma.
Deep amber color. Very clear and filtered.
Clean tasting with a bit of hops, could drink a few of these.
Toasted flavor, somewhat like bluepoint. Bit of a dry finish.
Good first start.

From a growler, pours a translucent light brown. Very active carbonation with lots of bubbles and a fizzy head.

The nose is dried fruit, dark malt, light earthy hops, and a little biscuit. The flavor is moderately sweet, caramel malt, butterscotch, earthy hops and yeast. The finish is crisp, refreshing, but a bit heavy and sticky.

Overall, not bad...average.

On-tap at Bronx Ale House, Bronx, NY

A: The beer is crystal clear amber in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high off white head that died down rather quickly but left some lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of earthy yeast are present in the nose along with notes of toasted malts.
T: The taste has a slight bit of sweetness with flavors of toasted malts and malt extracts; hints of earthiness are present in the finish. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and seems like it would be appealing to novice craft beer drinkers.
