3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at brewery in VA with commonshawn, rosskyle, and samadouche. Pint glass. Amber/copper color, no significant head. Nose is malty and actually feels a little skunky. Some caramel notes as well. Taste is pretty straightforward with malts acting as the star. Caramel, toasted nuttiness, and malty/cereal are the prominent traits. Medium body with a slightly bitter finish. Very average overall but the brewpub is situated in a beautiful spot.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
An American version of a German altbier. Estimates deep aroma of caramel malt and light aroma hops. Very special and delicious taste of roasted almonds, hazelnuts, dark caramel and spice in the direction of cinnamon and sage. Mouthfeel is thick and luscious.. The finish is something special, for just before a spicy hoppy bitterness extends throughout the session, enters a nice little tang of biscuit on the palate. If you can imagine a brown cake with vanilla in large parts, that is the way it tastes.
