Had this on tap at rock bottom in Phoenix. Sort of a dark coppery color, with a very light head. The smell was malty, and the flavor was exactly what I expected from the smell. A hint of fruit and hops. Very drinkable. A nice beer to sit down with a plate of Fajitas.

This beer has a wispy tan head, the color is amber with some copper notes to it. The nose has a sweet caramel note to it, as well as some fruity notes that are reminiscent of cherries. There are also some malty aromatic notes of biscuits which round out the aroma. This beer has a slightly prickly carbonation and is fairly malty sweet, but there is some sort of dirty flavor here. The finish is sort of vegetal and a bit on the phenolic side (I get notes of bandaid, and rubber), though it is still fairly subtle. This is only a month old, so I am not too sure if this is an infection or the way this beer is supposed to be, at least the off flavors are fairly subtle.
