3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft on tap at the Eccentric Cafe (Kalamazoo, MI). Pours a deeper brownish copper pour, healthy orange amber glow in the body with a frothy offwhite head atop. Good lacing, decent ring head sits around and laces better than expected. Pretty beer. Aromas present some bready and biscuity malts, soft chestnut, toast, and mellow grain. A faint waft of rye, toastiness and biscuits keep moving. Subtle earthiness, grass and gentle yeast. Initial is lighter end of the fold, some good earthy and malty flavors arenít brooding, but incorporate a bready and biscuity appeal. Gentle earthiness, grassy hops and mellow yeast. Middle shows some gentle pretzel, some bread, a decent dose of carbonation hits the palate. Some earth, dryness as we start to move on. Earthy, bready, fairly clean. The darker malt slant gives some flavor, without making it hard to drink. Quite crushable, not complex but at itís 3.some percent ABV, I like what itís offering. Nice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Bells, clocks in at 3.8% on the big board. Taste is pretty diluted, earthy hops with some decent bitterness given such low abv. All in all not a bad option when youíve already had a few stronger beers.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft to taster at the Eccentric Cafe. Looks solid; a completely transparent orange with off-white lacing. Smells of mild malt. Tastes like it smells with a touch of roast. Average on the palate. Not bad for what it is.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Om tap at the Eccentric Cafe. Served in a pint glass.
Pour is a light copper color with a thin white head. Bit of lacing on the way down. The nose is fairly light with a hit of earthy malt and some mild floral-ish hops. Flavor is a bit kalty with a very mild roast presence and some bread. Earthy hops in the background. Light body with good carbonation and a lingering bitterness. Could use a bit kore body with the light flavor profile. Nothing special, but pretty decent.
Serving type: on-tap

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy amber body with a medium sized beige head. The nose is quite nice, lots of bread dough/fresh biscuits, plenty of fresh herbal hops, a touch of citrus. Taste is fairly dry, lightly bitter; cookie dough malts, toffee, herbal and floral hops. Medium/light body is round with moderate carbonation. My only complaint is that the malt tasted just a touch stale. Still, solid stuff.
