Had on-tap at the brewery in Newport, OR. It was one of their range they had on that I'd not tried before.

Pours an amber-brown hue, with some hazing in the body. Weight is solid. Head is a bright yellow-white colour, forming a ring and not much lace. Looks decent, if not exciting overall.

Nose is very light. There's some toffee, or brown sugar giving the sensation of sweetness, but there's no weight behind it. Slight hint of peely citrus creates some contract, but it just feels empty overall.

Taste is better, and has some reasonable complexity to it. Nutty front-palate entry, with some mild malt and toffee sweetness. This turns somewhat savoury mid-palate, giving a hint of meaty gravy and beef juices. Finish gives some burnt toffee, a touch of roasty bite and a hint of cherry. Quite nice overall, with some interesting twists in the flavour.

Feel is too light. It's fluid enough, but would feel very empty if not for the twisty palate.

Overall, it's pleasant enough without being particularly good. Maybe it is just a beer that's missing something (shock).
