2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This is a blah beer. It has a nice amber, glowing color but lacks a lasting head. There is no aroma and has less flavor than their light lager. It's just bland. There is a bit of caramel and maybe a little wood. Quite smooth, but I've had better Viennas.

Draught. Pours light copper with a faint white head. The aroma is sweet in a floral way with a very low acidity. The flavor is predominantly malty, though the brew is still thin overall. Hints of chocolate bread and nutmeg make up the light flavor and perhaps a small nip in the finish. Not so bad.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
TheDM and Hotstuff vacation brew 7. This draft brew was enjoyed at the Big River Brewery in Chattanooga Tennessee which was hosted by a pleasant accomodating staff. This brew poured a medium sized head of finely sized off-white colored bubbles that left behind a transparent uncarbonated red body and a fair lace. The mouthfeel was smooth and tingly at the start and smooth and chewy at the finish. It had a mild malt aroma and a red malt flavor. I noted that it was an OK beer.
