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.
