I had this on tap at the Rock Bottom Orland Park tapping party tonight. Poured from a keg into a shaker pint glass.

A= This ale poured a lightly hazed orange gold color with a 1" white head, and a decent amount of web lace left behind on my glass.

S= Aromas were a bit muted but showed some Northern Brewer hops, light malty sweetness, and caramel.

T= This was a nice, fairly clean, fresh hop ale. The malt was subtle but biscuity and sweet, and the hops were lightly floral, bitter, and delicious. Finish was light and mildly bitter.

MF= Lighter bodied with a crisp mouthfeel and a medium carbonation level.

D= Nice and drinkable ale here. The fresh hops were great but I think I actualy preferred the flavor of this ale on cask over the CO2 tap version though.
