GTMW 2011. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate complex hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good beer.

Sampled at St. Louis Microfest 2011 - This one tasted really off to me, but since they intentionally brought it to the fest I’ll still rate it. Pours lightly hazy copper with a light white head. The aroma has butter, butterscotch and some toasty malt. Medium smooth body with mild carbonation. The taste has diacetyl butteriness, nectar fruits, pine and earthiness. Hopefully I can have this some other time in better condition.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub in August 2009.
Pours a medium copper amber with an off white head and a decent amount of lacing as it makes its way down. Nose is rather muted--I get some citrus and floral notes, but not too much in the way of overall hop character. A bit of a bready malt backbone comes through. The taste is similar in that nothing really stands out, although the malt and hops do blend together into a decent whole. Medium mouthfeel with good carbonation. Not much alcohol taste, especially given the high abv on this. Fairly good drinkability. Not a bad beer, but nothing I’d really seek out.
Serving type: on-tap
