ONe of two brews I sampled on a trip to BAR tonite. THe beer comes chilled in a pint glass.
Beer is a clear copper color with a creamy off white head present and leaving tight lacing on the sides of my glass.
Aroma is fairly mild, with hints of caramel, some grassy hops and a bit of butterscotch.
First sip reveals an average bodied brew with a slightly creamy texture. The carbonation is mild and rolls across my palate.
Flavor is very sweet.Perhaps a bit of nutty flavors in there. Any hint of hops is quickly overshadowed my sweet toffee and butterscotch. There is a brief touch of roasted malt on the finish. A decent enough brew, but a little on the sweet side for me.

The beer is a plainish medium amber, with a light misting of head. Some patchy lacing.
Aroma is malty, with some caramunich malts. Heavy diacetyl buttery aroma, with some maple. Extremely sweet.
Flavor is almost overwhelmingly sweet, with an overpowering butterscotch flavor. Slight lagery cleanness, with minimal hopping. One dimensional, with a medium body and moderate carbonation. Sort of like beer with sugar in it. Gross.
