This is a nice hazy amber-colored ale with a fluffy head. The head dissipated quickly, though, but not due to a lack of carbonation. Sweet and citric aroma is impressive. Taste does not disappoint; hops and malt are nicely balanced. An extremely drinkable beer. Would order this again.

Poured on-tap and served in a pint glass, the beer is a muddled, hazy, unfiltered looking brown coloring that is pretty much opaque, and it has little to no head on the pour. The beer has a bready aroma, with a rich, dark molasses and caramel sweetness to it. Smells like a meal in a glass. The beer's flavors are supersweet malt, both caramel and molasses once again, and some nutty notes, with a toasted grain character as well that does a great job to balance the brew. The beer is robust and smooth in mouth, almost creamy. Aftertaste is a blend of the nut and caramel sweetness, and the beer has a slightly cloying finish. Very good, solid beer for the style.

Draught @ Run of the Mill Brewpub: This one pours a cloudy to opaque caramel color. There was a wisp of an off-white head. It left some lacing. It has a lighter nose. Wheat, some fruits and some malts. The body is a little lighter too. Wheat, touch of bitterness, malts, slightly dry finish. A touch of spices. OK.
