2/28/14. On tap at the brewpub. Light amber brown pour with a small khaki head. Mild aroma, faint maltiness and honey, grassiness, not too offensive - surprised. Tame flavor, unoffensive, lightly malty, honey, hints of sweetness. Not awful.

Draft to taster at BBC (abv is 4.4). Looks fine; a transparent pale burnt-orange with white lacing. Smells and tastes semi-sweet and spicy; almost saison-ish. Average on the palate. Not what I expected, but decent nonetheless.

Brigadier (3550) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - FEB 13, 2012
On tap at brewpub
Sampled at the downtown location near the new arena this was a solid sessionable beer. At just around 4.5% it isn’t heavy but does have enough depth to be more than fizzy alcoholic water. This is actually a BBC release not to avoid.

Aroma / Appearance - Rosy red and warm the body has a good amber tint. Nutty and sweet the nose is like a cheap bag of chocolate chips. Gentle hops sooth the palate and provide a frame of reference for the malts.

Flavor / Palate - Soft hops easily transition to a soft sweet finish. Light nuttiness tempts the palate after a short delay. This is a good lunch beer if you have other things to do and don’t want the bitter taste of resin in your throat afterwards.
