2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Hazy dark amber with small fast fading head. Smells of caramel malts with an acidic note. Flavor is caramel, citrus, and herbs. It’s an OK ale but sure not worth the higher price. Not going to be getting this one again.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
355ml bottle from Brewdog.com. Pours a reddish amber with off-white head. Overly syrupy and malty for an amber. Like other Ballast beers I’ve tried recently this definitely needs to be toned down a bit. Hard to finish.

Bottle @ Twisted Cork, Muskego, Wisconsin. Deep/dark amber pour. Head dies quickly. Very bready nose. Less hops and more malt on the palate. Like a dry Bisquick biscuit. Very nice!!!

Draught @ Taproom No307. Reddish copper color with small foamy beige head, fruity caramel aroma, low carbonation, sweet fruity taste, very little hops effect, long sweet finish. Too sweet and fruity for my taste.

From the tap the pour is clear and a beautiful red to dark auburn color with an off white head, the aroma is malts clean and hints of vanilla, the taste is Carmel malts work a good balance of hops, the mouthfeel is thin, overall a great amber beer
