16 oz tap into a pint glass.
A: Little lace, virtually no head (I blame this on an overzealous bartender). Gorgeous auburn brown color with red and orange hues.
S: Caramel, slight milk chocolate, and nice barley aroma.
T: Caramel maltiness. Soft pretzel and slight dark spice. A little cloying at the finish but slight hop bitter takes that mostly away. Good.
M: Nice level of carbonation. Slight oiliness.
D: Good. Not necessarily a go-to or one worth searching high and low for but a nice choice when offered.
Serving type: on-tap

Transparent copper color with a thick head with medium retention.
Predominant aroma of caramels and white bread.
Sweet flavor of caramel malt, licorice, cinnamon and just a bit of soap, nutmeg and earthy and citrus hops (maybe just the orange peel). Wheat gave it some good roundness. Mildly dry aftertaste.
Medium body with low carbonation.
Decent beer for who likes malty beers with lots of caramels.
Serving type: bottle
