Served in a pint glass at the brewery.

Appearance - Deep red. Orange at the edges. Nice cream head. Good lacing. Thin layer on top.

Smell - Raw hop aroma. Like hops during the boil. Green and grassy. Caramel blends in.

Taste - Hoppy grapefruit and pine. Musty caramel with a sharp flavor. Almost a tang, but not quite. Not as pleasant as the other offerings.

Mouthfeel - Medium light. Medium carbonation. That sharp flavor lingers.

Overall - Rustic may be an apt desciptor. It has a rough feel, but decent flavors.

On draft at Prohibition Pig, Waterbury, VT.

Poured a medium copper hue with a half finger foamy white head. There was Goid retention and lacing.

The smell featured light caramel malts and a soft grassy hop.

The flavor was likewise well balanced with a slight residual herbalness.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a decent standard session ale.
