On tap at Schaumburg location, pours a clear light brownish red with no head, the aroma is of older hops and malt, the flavor was really off to me, the hops seemed very faded and old and was more sweet than hoppy, really didnít work for me.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at a RAM Brewery restaurant - Served in a frosty glass (?!?!?!) Has an amber color (more like the color of weak iced tea). Has a piney nose and an earthy taste. The body is thin and the finish on this beer is terrible with a bitter woodsy taste. They sell 18 and 24 oz of this stuff. Iím trying to figure out what Iím going to do with the other 17 ounces.
