On tap at the brewpub in August 2009. Pours a copper color with a decent white head. The smell isn't terribly hoppy, nor is the taste. Also, there is a fairly strong diacetyl presence, and with very few hops there to mask it, it overpowers the rest of the beer. This affects the beer's drinkability quite a bit.
