Draft a Seven Bridges. Poured a auburn color with a moderate frothy white head that diminished quickly. Average sweet malty aroma. Light to medium body with a thin texture. Same sweet malty flavor with little bitter finish of short duration. Many better brews from this location.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Virtually no aroma, what was there was mild citrus, peat and brown sugar. Tannic, dry, nutty and made with quality malt. Mildly hopped, medium finish. Palate was a bit watery, and it needed a bit more fizz and kick.

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 couldn’t get past the adjunct flavor in each sip. Imbalanced clearly to the malty side of things.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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. It’s 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 I’d hope a typical lager to. It’s not bad at all.
