On tap @ Firehouse Pub & Grill, Meridian ID. Served in a pint glass.

A: Attractive golden orange color with hints of straw...clear, with a creamy white head.

S: Malty with a light hop bitterness...some spices mixed in as well...toasted grains and a dab of honey as well.

T: Crisp, light nuttiness & some grassy characteristics...very bready and surprisingly dry with a hint of sweetness.

MF: Crisp light-to-medium body with decent bitterness and dryness.

O: Not exactly 'quaffable' for my palette and not something I would revisit a lot, but not a bad brew. Solid 'B' material.
