Hillsboro, OR at the Chicago Old Style Pizza
Draft, came to me in a Tulip glass, amber in color and very cloudy along with not much of a head head. Side glass lace was tan in color.

AROMA: Caramel, biscuit-y malts, and a bit of brown sugar. Sweetend coffee.

TASTE: Maltiness with caramel, coffee and citrus hops. Creamy with a spicy finish.

On tap. Poured a clear amber color with a small, off-white head of foam. It smelled of toasted caramel, bread crust and floral notes. Sweet caramel with a slight roastiness and bitter bite.

Get these via growler at the Fred Myer in Pocatello Idaho. Tried on a whim a year ago and enjoyed very much. On my second one now and glad they still carry it. Nice amber. Smooth and easy to drink, but still has substance to it and a good mouthfeel. You have to wait for the head to break, especially out of a fresh growler. Very drinkable and not heavy. Some light lemon and mild hops. A good fall beer Well balanced. You can finish several glasses alone with no worries and you won;t get bored with it.
