My introduction to Raleigh craft beer (although I had it in Charlotte a little over a year before moving down to NC). Crisp, slightly dry with nutty/toasted bread flavor notes. Slightly metallic tasting finish (it was off draught). It's a local staple around Raleigh, places that aren't even craft beer places tend to have it.

Enjoyable but not outstanding in any way. Low roastiness and malt flavors but both aromas and flavors are fairly muted. Yeasty aftertaste might indicate a low level sanitation problem.

Nice easy drinking brown. Well balanced and light mouthfeel. Clean finish.
