Pours from the tap at McNellie's OKC a dark copper with about a finger of white head. It dissipates fairly soon, leaving moderate lacing. As several others have said, there is very little aroma. Maybe there's a hint of bread, but it's probably more in my mind than my nose. Tastes of caramel, toffee and just a bit of hops in the aftertaste. The mouth is nice and creamy. Maybe there's something wrong with the tap because this tastes more like a hoppy brown than a pale ale. It's not bad, but rather unremarkable.
