Pours a nice copper color.
Produces a yellow-tan head with surprising longevity.
Head Laced the glass as if desperate to maintain its presence in the glass.
Small nose.
Flavor is "bitter 'n' sweet"-- hops, malt and the presence of some sort of wood.. The brewer doesn't brag about it-- but I could be fooled into believing this beer had spent time inside wooden barrels... or at least flinches of wood were immersed in the tonnes. But the "woody" flavor hints doesn't really make the beer unique or add a memorable taste sensation.. it's just a noticeable characteristic that's "there".

Overall I conclude that this is an enjoyable brew after a long day.
