Reviewed on 6/27/2010. On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear burnt orange with a white head. Aroma of sweet malt, light fruits, and bready malt. Flavor of sweet malt, bready malts. Not too sweet although sweet malt is the dominant flavor. Very drinkable and tasty. A surprise winner for me.

the aroma was malty, hint of noble hops, hint of carmelized malt.
the flavor is malty, good hop flavor, carmelized malt, minerallity lingering.
good session beer goes down easy very enjoyable while sitting on the deck.

A very nice beer. 4.2 % ABV. Pours a cooper to brown color, nice, carries a smallish head with nice lace sticking to the glass. Nose shows off the malt, flavor is malty sweet with nuttiness. The body is dry and chalky, on the light side and winds up with a nice long malty finish. This is a very nice representation of a not so common.
