3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at restaurant in Frederick, MD. Served in a footed pilsner glass, clear ambery-golden color with white head. Aroma of citrus/pine/slight fruity hops with malt backing. Taste seems to lean more pine/earth bitterness and caramel malt sweetness. Light body, moderate carbonation, bitter, sweet with equal finish. Strange enough not a huge hop step up from their pale ale, just an okay IPA.

No "hop storm" here...just a beer that might be considered average if you were dying of thirst. No need to bother with this one again.

Draft. Mildly hoppy but with a real off-putting soapy/chemical taste. Bad sample or just not good.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at San Bruno location. Aromas of bread, decaying pine needles and slight molasses. Poured mostly clear orange with white head. Taste was assertive chewy bread malt. Faint orange and dirty forest floor. Mouthfeel was a cloying - surprisingly so for the ABV. A disappointment after enjoying the Oktoberfest.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft served in a flight at the local brewpub. Pours a somewhat cloudy gold with an off-white head that leaves a sheet of lace and a spotty film behind. Sweet and malty and grainy. Orange, macaroon, grass, and florals provide some balance, but itís all over the place. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation. The mouthfeel starts muddled, gets too sweet in the middle, and finishes with a bit of bitterness. After some good pale ales, this one is a total mess. Maybe six hops are too many.
