Served in a shaker pint glass at Beer Market - Schaumburg.

Gotta start the night off mildly, amiright? This stuff pours a slightly murky sienna topped by a half-finger of light khaki foam. The nose comprises biscuits, light nuts, mild grass, and a kiss of honey. The taste brings in more of the same, with a stronger contingent of nuts and an addition of dark greens. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a thickly fluid feel. Overall, a nice little mild. I'd probably like it better on cask or something, but here it's still pretty tasty and enjoyable.

On tap at World Street Kitchen
Dark brown leaning more towards blacks than reds. 1/4 to 1/2 inch head that settled out rather quickly.
Nice soft malt character with minimal hop character.
Taste is like a light well done english brown ale. Nice malt character and minimal sweetness. Soft balancing hopping. Fast finish.
Appropriately light body with ample carbonation.
Nice drink that went well with the food. Refreshing and tasteful. Acceptable bold for style.
