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.

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 aren’t 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 it’s 3.some percent ABV, I like what it’s 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 you’ve already had a few stronger beers.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap 7/22/09 at the Eccentric cafe. Pours a reddish copper color with a nice lacing white head. Aroma is not much except for some malt. Flavor is some caramel malt, some dry oak leaves and a touch of floral hop in the finish. Semi sweet on the palate, and mostly uninteresting although I expect its the style I dont particularly care for.
