Had on draught at The Pony Bar. Good overall flavor and drinkable, but a bit thin to my taste.

The appearance was a nice looking hazy bronzed orange color with a bar pour’s kind of slim white head that dissipated within less than a minute leaving some messy lacing. The smell started off with some sweet peach, light apricots, light pine blend bittersweet and sound off together really nicely. The taste was bittersweet all of the way through in the previously mentioned flavors running into a nice semi-sweet to bitter citrus aftertaste. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice bittersweet feel on my tongue. Sessionable enough to want to have with food. Overall, I’d have this again. Its pretty good.
