2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A decent bitter, but something about it just seemed off kilter. Maybe a little too astringent in the finish (small beers do end up overhopped sometimes).

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
(22oz bottle) Crystal clear light amber body topped by medium off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, bready, caramel, some apricot. Taste is mild sweet, earthy, faint caramel. Light body. I can give them credit for trying something that has not been done much, but after the first time it came out this way I cannot understand why they continue to bottle it. Definitely subpar relative to their other beers.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light caramel malt aroma with some noble or floral hop nose. Amber gold color with a white head that wasn’t trying too hard. Near medium body with mild, creamy carbonation. The flavor is something of light caramel with a very impressive bitterness. The finish is pretty much the same, and the bitter persists nicely into the finish. Not exactly crisp, but very, very nice. This is a session beer.
