Had this on tap at Fox and Hound. Very orange copper appearance. one finger head with tiny bubble, the color of the body is right on for the style but it was very clear with not much action. Nose was thin with small toffee and spice-mostly malt. Flavor was good holding the same notes as the aroma although fuller and more pronounced. Not watery but lacking flavor still. Drinkable as a session beer.

Had a couple on tap last night at the Uno's in Bowie.

A- Bright clear copper with a one finger white bubbly head. The waiter actually made it a point to bring it pretty quick after it was poured. Small carbination streamers for the rest of the glass.

S- All I really got was toasted malts. Not sure if its because of the restaraunt enviroment or the beer. Have to try it again at home.

T- Caramel and sweet toasted malts.

M- Medium to light body, a little carbination tingle and a little dry at the finish.

D- Very easily a session brew. Had a few with dinner but will definitely pick up a 6 pack to try it bottled.
