3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Homebrew Mart, sampled with WeeHeavySD. Pours dark brown with an off-white ring that lingers. Big aroma, lots of oak, malt, and grass. Taste is a bit lighter, a little smoky, with malt. Lingering smoky oak flavors that ends a bit watery. Very nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ home brew mart. Full of oak notes - but sweet enough to balance those flavors. Very smooth - but its hard to rate since I haven’t tried the original. Brown with beige head.

On cask at the Linda Vista location. Pours a deep coffee brown with a beige head. Toasted malts and oak are the mail aromas and flavors, was not a huge fan of this....
