Appearance: Hazy medium golden in color, with a modest white head, which soon collapses to scattered patches of foam. Thin lacing coats the glass walls.

Aroma: Caramel notes are accompanied by pine hops.

Taste: Opens with caramel malt and aggressive pine hops. AS the taste progresses, the caramel malt shines through a bit, offering some balance to the fairly intense hops. Finishes with a wave of pine tar hops and a little sweet malt.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, fairly pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: A decent example of the style, I wonder why Widmer Brothers stopped brewing it?

Presentation: Packaged in a custom twelve-ounce brown glass long-neck bottle, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.
