On tap at the brewpub...
Appears a semi-transparent copper toned amber with a small, off-white head that quickly fades into a gentle collar. Tiny streams slowly rise to the the top.
Smell contains notes of florally hopped, toffee, sourdough, juicyfruit gum, and mild caramel.
Taste is of the mentioned aromas with a hoppy, floral, malty sweetness that stands out.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a "worty" like sweetness to it.
Drinkability? Grainy goodness in a pint.

On tap at Haven Gastropub in Pasadena, CA.

Pours a clear gold with a foamy white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, tea, perfume, and fruity aromas. Taste is much the same with perfume and spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with an interesting perfume-like presence in the aroma and flavor.
