Pours one finger of head on a hazy copper colored body.
The aroma is burnt fruit (apricot, plum and banana). Unique but good.
The taste is malty with mild lemon bitter, fruity but not that sweet.
The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation.
A great beer that remains unique among a growing category.

On tap at the Oxford Suites motel at Jantzen Beach. Color is dark amber and appearance is cloudy in the pint glass. A modest head to start with. Plenty spritzy in the mouth with a distinct club soda taste.

Quite malty mouthfeel. Some browned flavors and a little sharp. The hops are herbaceous and on the dank side. Collard greens and the old oaken bucket. Murky and something tasting like "rust" overall. More bitter as you sip. I find it really quite unpleasant, but maybe people like this particular taste.
