The last of many beers at Big River on Saturday night. I didnít finish it and wasnít very impressed. It felt stale and malty. It also took forever to come out as the waitress was in the weeds all night. Iím probably not being fair, but I donít get the good reviews on this beer. It was flat and not worth the calories.

Tinseltown Seven Bridges, Jax Fl :sniffer: @ Seven Bridges, Tinseltown. :Sniffer: Part of the "letís cheat and grab a bunch of ratings by doing the $4, sample everything on tap" method. I wasnít kidding when I rated the Pilsner. Drop this one. Lager, but even there itís well, uninspired and bland. Nose is grain and stagnant water. Taste is the same with some wheat and maybe some orange. Couldnít really grab much else from this. Better not to spend your money this way, even if you only like lagers.

On tap at Chattanooga. Pours quite red with a good white head. The aroma is very woody with bicuity notes and something like damp basement. There is a surprising level of European hop bite in the flavor. Itís very woody with a pleasing dry finish. Hints of apples and bread are noted. This is a very crisp, clean beer. This delivers in the way Iíd hope a typical lager to. Itís not bad at all.

Draught in Chattanooga: This one pours with a small white head that dropped off almost immediately and left no lacing. It is an absolutely clear amber color. The aroma is a little light, although pleasant. Just hints of some toffee, malt, roastiness and earthiness. The taste is good. It had just a touch of sweetness to it. Pretty good balance with a hint of bitterness on the finish. No bad, it will appeal to many, but is rather non-descript.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft in Chattanooga w/ Shag/Clash. Poured a dark amber to copper color with a nice initial head, decent lacing. The aroma was light roast, some caramel. The flavor followed suit, although mixed in and underneath was a corny adjunct flavor that started to get annoying by mid-glass. The first half of the glass was drinkable, probably the best of the four I did at BR Chattanooga (although not lager crisp, even had some fruity ester notes over top of it), but with warmer temperatures, I couldnít get past the adjunct flavor in each sip. Imbalanced clearly to the malty side of things.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2007 Pint at the Seven Bridges Brewpub in Jacksonville. Had this on the eve of their party to introduce it, with some of the proceeds going to charity. This beer poured clear amber orange with a white head that soon dissipated. It was an honest, straight-up beer. Very drinkable, and very forgetable. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing to make it special or memorable. a good Irish Red, but boring.
