12 oz bottle from PittBeerGirl as part of 2010 Secret Bunny. Much the same to report in terms of taste, BUT the beer seems a LOT lighter (yellow) color than I recall (and that my notes would suggest) from five years ago. Interesting.

Deep orange pour with an impressive looking head and plenty of lacing. Orange color is reminiscent of a rich IPA, but this drinks much lighter and more refreshing. Attractive looking pint.
Aromas are of some buttery type malts, and a lovely balance of bitterness compliments the soft touch that they provide.
Very smooth, and delicious in the mouth, a really good beer to sit down and enjoy a session with even though it’s NOT a session beer! Finishes gently, leaving you wanting more.
This is highly drinkable and I think it would appeal across the board, with solid BA’s, newbies, ladies, on its own or with food. A very nice cross-over beer with lots of potential to be enjoyed in many different venues.
