Cloudy Brown with Amber hues, coffee, toffee, caramel saltiness, biscuit, light hop character, slightly cheesy hop note, this may be from toasted malts giving me a slightly oxidized impression

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft sample at the Schaumburg RAM. More hop on the nose, and I also scent a bit of unfiltered yeast. Reddish amber in color. Tinge of roastiness to the taste, like a Vienna version of an English bitter. I seem to taste a few sharp US hops added to the main English hop load.

From the tap poured an amber color with a fair amount of head. Nice light malty hoppy flavor with a quick finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Caramel, toast, toffee, and light hop spice on the nose. Slightly sweet from the ale yeast. Pours dark reddish, thin tan head. The flavor is light and sweet with caramel, toast, toffee, a little nutty, light earthy bitterness, and a clean crisp sweetness to round out this finish. Not a bad beer by any means, just somewhat uninteresting.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a thin red with almost no head. Nose and taste are a blend of generic hops and malts. Good beer for the mass, didn’t do much for me.
