On tap at the Village Tavern in Geneseo, NY.

Pours a clear brown, maybe a bit of orange. 1 inch head forms quickly. Little strings of lacing form down the glass.

Smells like grainy and bready with some strong caramel hints.

Tastes pretty similar, with some citrus zest, pine, toasted bread, caramel, light brown sugar, and oak. All flavors are light and non-overpowering, and mixed well. A little bit of hop bitterness at the end of each sip.

Medium to light body, excellent level of carbonation.

A great easy drinking session beer from Firestone Walker. I know some people dog on this beer, but I quite liked it.
