malty/cherry aroma. Heavy body, not as malty as expected. Finishes without bitterness, rather unpleasant grainy aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours mostly clear darkish coppery amber. Three fingers of lightly amberish off-white head that recedes to a frothy cap that is well-retained. Aroma is fairly sweet and malty with notes of egg cream and caramel. Mouthfeel is fairly smooth, medium heft, lightly pebbly. Well-retained foamy rings and sheets of lacing. Flavor of egg cream and caramel overlain by a nice hoppy bitter bite. Slight tinge of sourish dishrag. Overall not bad, seems slightly raw and unrefined, but OK. 22 oz. bottle from Rum Runner.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from Growler, a beautiful ruby red-brown with a medium white head. Aroma of hops, and a touch of roasts. Flavor starts on a smooth, semi-sweet note, with caramel, hops, and some earthiness. Through the mid-palate and the finish a distinct roasted flavor along with peet and some hops comes forward. The finish is medium-length, and just a tad strange in flavor. Overall, a solid pale ale that did not disappoint.
