2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample at the brewpub. This brew is a murky tea color with a thin white head that evaporates to nothing pretty quickly. Minimal lacing to speak of. Aroma of fruit and earthy malt. Light body with mildly roasted malt and fruit flavors, as well as a touch of hops. The finish is grainy malt and does not last very long. Barely average and forgettable overall.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampler tray at brewpub. Poured a dark amber with a small white head. Aroma of caramel malt, light pine hops and some grain. Flavor caramel, small bit of hops and strange grainy mouthfeel. Not something I will feel the urge to drink again.
