Draft at Allentown. Pours clear medium brown with a very thin head. Tastes like malt, dry hops, light syrupy sweetness. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like light malt and caramel.

Meh - most of the beer I sampled at the Allentown location was good, but not great. This was no exception.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Just like the Knuckleball I tasted earlier in my recent visit to the Brew Works in Allentown, this amber lager was a big disappointment. It poured a copper color with absoutely no head. I got a bit of toasted malt and light hops in the aroma. But the flavors were very bland and light. This beer doesn’t really have all that much to offer. I tasted some toasted malt and very light hops in the body, along with a hint of bread.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Growler shared by jcwattsrugger, thanks John. Poured a nice amber bodey that was slightly thin looking with a smaller light tan head. Aroma of grains, bread, dry hay and earth. Flavor is fresh cut grass, bread and crusty grains. Drinkable but it’s just an average amber.
