On tap at the brewpub in August 2009. Reviewed from notes.

Pours a moderate copper color with a nice white head and some good sticky lacing. The nose is light floral and earthy hops with a bit of caramel. The taste is the same, with some slight bitterness overtaking a bready body. Light to medium in feel and moderately bitter. Drinks quite well and was one of their better beers.
