Had a bunch of these on draft attending a Chattanooga Lookouts game, then tried it a month later at the Brewery. There is some herb or something in it that just didn’t appeal to me. I know it has won some awards so my review is just that – my opinion. I don’t find a very clean finish – sometimes grassy or herbal that leaves a funky taste with me.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, picked up in Chattanooga. Poured clear, lighter reddish-orange with a short-lived cap of white head. The aroma picked up lots of over-sweetened caramel malts with the slightest bit of toast to ’em.. fainter dark fruits emerge with warmth, along with some herbal and earthy notes. The flavor again found too-sweet caramel and dark fruits with fizzy herbal and floral bitterness falling off the sides of the tongue.. sweet, tacky finish. Lighter-bodied and too sweet on the palate, but refreshing.. this was certainly drinkable.

Draft... Disney Boardwalk location... Clear, deep amber lager with a small, fizzy, white head. Caramel aroma with earthy and spicy notes. Malty flavor, but well-balanced with good bitterness. Medium-bodied and creamy with lively carbonation. Coarse, lightly bitter finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Understated, and probably would have gone really well with dinner. Dark brown, or perhaps copper. Tasty, grainy flavors and an ever-so-slight hop finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Slight malt aroma. A copper colored pour with a slight off white head. A decent malt on the front with an excelleent bitter finish. Slightly over carbonateed and a tad thin almost a 4 but not hardly. a pleasant surprise in that I expected the standard lager with no hops and the wet paper tates none of which was there. A good beer.
