On tap at Sweeney's Ale House in Encino, CA.

Pours a murky crimson-orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, caramel, earth, and slight cinnamon aromas. Taste is much the same with toast, earth, and caramel flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is straightforward but easy to drink.

Serving type: on tap.
