On tap at The Hay Merchant, served in a 16 oz shaker pint. A deep amber brown with dense off white head and lace. What starts toward a straightforward amber ale finds a better balance with earthy hops and barrel wood adding complexity and offsetting much malty sweetness with a crisper, drier finish.
