Served in an Ohio State shaker pint glass.

Is it steamy in here, or is it just this beer? Anyway, this stuff pours a clear copper-bronze topped by a finger of dirty white foam. The nose comprises toffee, dried malt, mild flowers, milder pine, and a touch of candied orange peel. The taste brings in more of the same, though with a heavy, overarching dose of conflicting maple syrup and pine resin. This coupling clashes constantly, drowning out the otherwise mild and genial characters. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda dry and crisp finish. Overall, this is a bit too messy of a beer to do much good anywhere. It could be worse, though, so I guess there's that...
