Served from a pre-filled growler into a Sam pint glass.

A: Copper with no head.

S: Malty sweetness and some bitterness.

T: Roasted malt with a touch of bitterness in the back.

M: Thin body with light carbonation.

O: This happens to be a style that I'm not overwhelmingly familiar with, but it hits all the right notes. Simple, light, sessionable ABV brew that is satisfying.

@ RBC

Foggy amber under a small head that leaves some excellent looking rings on the glass. Wonderful warm, toasty malt aroma; quite mild, but very appealing. Smooth, sweet toasted malts, earthy hop bitterness, a little honey, and light fruity yeast. Super drinkable, medium-light body, with a fair amount of bitterness coming through for its strength. Nicely done! I'd love to try it from the cask.

Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, brown-copper coloring with a halo of white, filmy head. Nose of roast and toffee forward, with hints of caramel. Flavors are roasted forward, with a tangy toffee and caramel blend, and a subtle hops pepper and bitter undertone. Smooth bodied with a crisp, clean finish. The aftertaste is tangy sweet, with a subtle bitterness. Solid for the style and a tasty drink.

Poured a seethru light brown with decent head/lace and a light aroma that doesn't have much other than some grainy, bitter hops and malts in it. Beer is light to medium bodied, dry, slightly hoppy, some balance between the hops and mild bread/caramel/nutty (toffee) flavors. Basically, a simple beer with a little bit of hops for a crisp finish and overall a touch of sweetness. Not a bad beer but not one of my favorites from this place and just not a lot going on in this brew.
