2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at 21st. Nothing special. Pours an amber color with nice head. No discernible aroma. Tastes fine but no real outstanding characteristics. As a session beer, it would be fine. Otherwise, I would pass.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gorgeous late sunset color. Overly soft malt body with mild nitrogen induced astringency. Nutty and herbal palate that is somewhat indistinct. Clean and soft finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(On tap) Beautiful, warm amber golden with a dense, creamy, off-white head - nitro. Lightly nutty, roasted aroma. Medium body with a lightly roasted malt profile and a very soft mouthfeel - as always with nitro beers. Ends dry and rather hoppy which seems to be the trademark for 21st. 190307

I was unimpressed with this brew. While I was writing this feedback I called the place I drank it at just to make sure it was the brew I drank. The person that answered unexpectedly insisted I talk to Scott, the person that brewed it; he was sitting at the bar. This is what I (sort of) told Scott; it was flat, bland, slightly sour, toasty, nutty, a faint, faint hint of cocoa, and toffee. Maybe he had a bad day, he sounded like a really good guy. Best of luck to the 21st.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A lighter beer for the brewery at 5.6% ABV, this is also unusual as something red colored, lighter bodied and nitrogenated. Dim malt flavors with soft edges are present in the aroma and flavors and in the finish. Fruit flavors. An easy drinking brew.
