On tap at Old Chicago for their American mini-tour. Poured a reddish/amber color with a small amber head. Aroma of caramel, malt, and a touch of fruit. Taste was decent: malt, caramel, a bit of fruitiness, and a hint of earthiness. No hop bitterness at all. Not bad; I'd drink it again if Boulder decides to bring this back to Old Chicago.

Pours a reddish copper color with a half inch tan head that dissipates into a thin layer of foam leaving lacing around the glass.

Caramel malt and fresh brewed tea aromas are apparent initially, with a hint of citrus and a toasty bread finish.

Toasted caramel malt forms the flavor backbone, with a bit of citrus acidity surfacing mid palate. There's a hint of chocolate rounding out the profile. A nutty flavor surfaces as it warms.

Body is medium, with moderate carbonation. A slight oilyness is present.

Overall, I expected more hop punch for the style. It's a bit too malt dominant, but fairly good drinkability.
