3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy amber with a huge head of light tan foam. Lots of effervescence. Nose is malty with a whiff of hops. Very creamy on the palate. First flavor is malt with some bread and yeast flavors. Hop taste follows for a medium dry finish. A likeable beer that pairs well with brats or burgers off the grill.

Tap at Sheffields in Chicago. Copper with small white head. Smells of flat grain. A bit like a Vienna lager. Kinda thin. Not much of a bite or finish. Malty grain. Didn’t love it.

2/26 (Bottle) - Decent pour, smelled of toffee and caramel. Poured light, reddish brown coloured with a short tan head. Taste was light, not much texture, and easy going down. Good light tasting beer for a meal.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[Tap] Dull amber color with a soapy white head on top. Notes of toffee, sweet breads and molasses in the nose. Flavors are pretty sweet and grainy. More toffee, residual sugars, light yeast notes and bready flavors. Kind of one-dimensional. Tasting notes from Big Blue Craft Beer Festival in Sheboygan on 10/18/14.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Seems very thin and watery. Flavor is sweet, toffee, with a pleasant carbonation and smoothness. Was expecting something different. Not bad, and certainly got better after the first taste, but still a little weak all-around.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Slightly murky orange-amber pour with a small soapy head. Nice aroma of Belgian yeast and toffee. Comes off a little simple / artificial / thin on the tongue though - not bad, just not terribly good either.
