3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegman’s Leesburg. It pours a ruddy brown with a foamy, light tan head. The nose has a stale nuttiness to it and not much else. The flavor has some caramel malt, a light nuttiness, and a slight bitterness on the back end. Simple and drinkable. Medium bodied with rather prickly carbonation leading to a medium, slightly dry finish. There isn’t anything really remarkable about this brew, but it would make a good session beer.

A deep reddish copper ale with a thick moka head. In aroma, again, that meaty herbal aroma, with light roasted malts. In mouth, a nutty malt with herbal hops, lingering, light bitterness, overall, not bad. On tap at PA Flavor, April 9th, 2011.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark brown color with a small tan head that faded quickly. The aroma was faint vague fruits and toasty malts with a hint of caramel. The flavor was tangy, butter and a bit toasty with faint nut and caramel underneath. The finish was long, bitter and tangy. Medium body. Eh.
