On tap at several places out on the Cape, August 2011:

The beer appeared a nice, clear, dark ruby red with a nice, thick off-white head that dissipated too quickly, but did leave some lacing on the glass.

The aroma was a bit lighter than expected, but a mostly malty aroma and not much else.

The taste of the beer was good, a nice roasted malt taste with some hop presence. The after taste was dry and did not liger too long.

The beer had a medium body to it, clean with good carbonation and overall I thought that the beer was a good representation of the style and one that I would drink again.

Serving type: on-tap

At the brewery, served in tasting glass.

Appearance - brown/gold color, some slight hints of reddish tones. Decent foamy tan head. Not too persistent, but some decent cling.

Smell - toasty biscuit aroma, pretty grainy. Light resinous hops with some grassy/earthiness.

Taste - sweet, toffee, I found it had an odd bitter kick at the end of the taste. Sweetness was OK. Some resinous hop character, a touch of earthiness. Decent flavor except for the odd bitterness. Didn't seem overly aggressive on the hops.

Mouthfeel - nicely carbonated and medium bodied. Taste lingers a bit, I wouldn't call it "clean".

Overall - a decent beer, easy drinking, but not something I would seek out. The color was off based on what others are describing, so I wonder if there is some variability?
