On tap at brewery:
Deep amber with a chill haze that betrays it’s clarity a tad. Off-white head forms a cap that fades only after I start drinking the beer. Nice lacing that looks like a pile of bones.

Nose has an earthy to somewhat coppery nose that reminds me of an ESB, but with a little more malt and less hop florals. With warmth there’s a dry white grape aspect that comes in.

A clean slightly grainy malt opening, one which brings the earthiness of the nose in early. A bit of dry grass, a hint of dark berry, and an ever so slight tang of metal. The beer leans slightly bitter and is quite clean tasting, medium light gel with subdued but noticeable carbonation.

Decent, crisp, but beaten out by local options

Poured from 12oz bottle into glass. No date coding seen on bottle.
Pale amber colored body, clear. Slight skiff of off white head and cap after settling. Just a couple of spots of lacing.
Rich and inviting malt aroma, and sweeter caramel behind.
Taste of malt and caramel, and well balanced. A little sweet with very little bitterness. Malt and hop combine at the end. Sublime.
Medium mouth feel, low carbonation.
Bright, balanced, hearty, slightly darker ale.

Great blend of hops with a really nice and solid backbone of malty greatness with hints of banana...really good...I would get this again in the near future.
