This is perennial session brew for me. It's local, many times better any macro crap, and you can get it absolutely everywhere on tap in my city.
Poured from a pitcher. Nice 3/4 in tannish head that lasted a good while. Nice deep chestnut color with some amber. Is this a pale ale? I think on reviewer commented it looked more like a brown. I think he's right.
Toastiness and malt on the nose. Not terribly complex, but nice.
Mouthfeel is a mild carbonation that dances around the mouth and a smooth feel to the brew.
Tastes nice and toasty. Bready, caramel, toasty notes and a good bits of hops at the finish. Incredibly drinkable with buddies, one friend commented when sharing the pitcher, "I have to stop myself, it just dissappears if I just get talking and forget not to drink". Very true.
Serving type: on-tap
