On tap at Sheffield’s over Memorial Day weekend. Served in a pint glass. Pours a moderate golden color with a bit of a white head and not too much in the way of lacing. The nose has some cracked grain as well as very faint grassy hops with a touch of citrus. Light acidity; possible contamination. Flavor is similar. Not very pleasant.

On-tap at Sheffield's. Served in a pint glass.

A - Nice light tan foam settles to a thick cap and splotchy lace. Mostly transparent golden body.

S - Pretty malty - hold old is this? Some nebulous earthy hops and a bit of pine.

T - Malty, doughy, caramel malts, and moderate hop bitterness. A little candied citrus in the finish.

M - Chewy, medium-full body, with lower carbonation.

D - Pretty mediocre, but not as offensive as the reviews on Ratebeer suggest. I finished the glass, but it was a mild struggle.
