Good clarity to the amber and red colored brew, 1/4" white head and impressive lace job.

Noble like hops in here, more than average. Has a spice rye like feel to it. Caramel. Toffee.

Not bad actually, if you like your beer a tad malty, but not heavy, old school.

Consumed on tap at the brewery/restaurant.

Hazy amber/brownish color with a tan head that gives way to decent lacing. Both the smell and tastes are a good combination of malt and floral hops. Very refreshing. The finish is neither dry nor sweet. The mouthfeel is good as is the carbonation level. Overall this is a great beer to have with hot wings (which I did) and with the lower ABV it is an excellent session beer.
