Picked this up at stone brewing liberty station

Pour: a nice murky brown ale with a white thick head

Smell: opened the bottle and right away get a great sweet smell of malts

Taste: a great sweet malt flavor just to die for. Sweetness all around with the barley and the breaded malts.

Overall: being unfiltered this is greatness. The sweetness is just perfect no hoppy crazyness in this brew. I really got to sit and really truley enhoy this one.

On tap at Lucky Baldwins in Pasadena, CA.

Pours a murky dark brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, citrus zest, and some herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with a mild roasty and citrus zest bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that smells better than it tastes in my opinion.
