Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Hazy orange appearance and color. Doesn't have a particularly strong smell, but nothing offensive about it. The beer drinks very smoothly, and is a Baltimore staple. Would recommend, but as a safe local standby. There are better beers in Baltimore, but you can't go wrong with this local favorite.

Some slow bubbling activity keeps up a creamy, foamy sort of off-white head to rest at a consistent and well-retained half finger over a bright pale orange brew. Deposits of mixed spots and patches of lacing stick to the glass in a more than moderate quantity.
There seems to be a mix of American and English character here. Earthy and herbal quality mingle with a fairly obvious caramel malt, and there's a certain muskiness as well. There's a fruity element, a bit in the smell and more on the tongue, with a touch of toast and, more in the taste, a hint of citrus.
The body is light, verging on medium, and there's a tea-like quality to the English aspect that I think some attribute to the the mouthfeel but doesn't have quite that kind of impact. It does lack depth to a point, but it's a pretty good mouthfeel overall, bright and crisp and clean.
