On tap at Revolution in Chicago.

Nutty in the nose with aromas of toffee and caramel. Very light in body, the beer mirrors the nose in the mouth with the addition of a lightt coffee flavor.

Very pleasant and an excellent lunch beer, it's worth a pint to accompany a noonday sandwich.

This is actually the Revolution beer I've been most interested in. Served in a pint glass.

A - Garnet with cherry highlights and edging. Pours clear with a 2 finger off-white head that leaves behind a thin collar and surprisingly long legs. Looks super.

S - Whiffs of toffee, lightly roasted grain, and a hint of chocolate. Overall, a faint bouquet, but inviting.

T - Toffee, caramel malt, and a touch of gently bitter hops. The lack of any alcohol burn makes this a mellow charmer of a brew.

M - A nice medium bodied beer with lively carbonation, finishes dry and invites the next gulp immediately.

O - The mild ale revolution is seemingly always right around the corner, and if there were more like this and Two Bros. Long Haul readily available, it just might happen. It's tempting just to session this, but there are so many other interesting handles here to try...

pours a nice light mahogany color

good nose with tones of grains, malts, and bits of toffee. Nose is solid and pretty straight forward

lighter feel that is nice and pleasant with some caramel and toffee with some malts as well

this is a session nice beer. Some good tones but they are lacking some depth
