Unknown vintage; drank 9/23/15 on draft @ Bangers & Lace Evanston.

Murky red rust appearance.

Off-white head; strong lace.

Caramel, orange citrus & coriander notes in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Orange zest, caramel & coriander flavors. Sessionable but very flavorful; I wish this was easier to get!
