3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught @ Headkeeper: This one pours a crystal clear, golden color. There was just a wisp of a white head on it. There was no lacing. The nose is lighter yet nice. Grassy and earthy hops, some malts. The taste is good. It is slightly bitter and dry. Earthy hops, some malts in background. Pretty good!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle. A frothy off white head leaves thick lacing. The beer is copper hued. This is nutty and malty. Hops are light and tend to pop in and out. Crackery malts with caramel. Some grain. Hops bring some brightness late and darker fruit and bitterness come after that. Citrus. A nicely balanced beer.

Draught at Good Beer, N.Y., June 1. Pours a hazy copper-gold with a small frothy off-white head. Sweet aroma of caramel malt. Flavour of grain, caramel malt, a hint of diacetyl, some light sugary sweetness and a light bitter finish. Average bodied. I didn’t much care for this.

Bottle thanks to Lewis. Pours amber with a nicely proportioned head. The nose has biscuits, cake mixture and a fresh spicy hop. The taste has more of the same. The palate is close to medium bodied with a nice balanced middle and finish. Overall, a good ale.
