3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft sample at Boscos Squared in Memphis. Pours a clear amber color with almost no head whatsoever, just a faint off-white ring. Aroma of toffee, sweet malts, crackers, corn, cereal grains, and a hint of citrus. Flavor of sweet and crackery malts, toasted sugar, dry grains, molasses, and mild spices. Medium-bodied, with a dry, malty mouthfeel and crisp carbonation. Almost reminded me of a California common. Pretty good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep gold with a hint of red, fluffy white head and lace. Light sweet malt aroma. Sweet malt with a hint of medicine/herbaliness, with a mild bitter. A tad thin and a bit fizzy. Still a good beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Nashville brewpub. Poured a clear amber color with a one finger white head. The aroma was very barleywine like, with vanilla, molasses, sugar and some spices. The flavor was molasses and spice. There was a significant bitter finish that hung around for a few minutes. The palate was average, with soft carbonation, a slick mouthfeel and a medium/full body.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap, Nashville brewpub. An interesting and unique ale, with distinct flavors of molasses and floral honey. That makes it sound sweet, but it isn’t, being leavened by soft spices like white pepper, a heavy dose of ginger, and cardamom. Noble-esque hop bitter in the finish. Hazy copper in the glass with almost no head. Smells of carnations and fruit cake.

Draft at Nashville. Pours pale golden amber with a fluffy white head. Faint aroma of toasted grains and floral hops. The flavor combinations on this are odd. Flavors of corn flakes, molasses and smoke with a touch of soft european like hop bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Mahogany pour with a lemon tinted head. Wet Popsicle stick nose. It is odd to say the least. Mmmm, sugardaddy, mmmm. A nice bitter level in the finish. Leaves an enjoyable salty sweet taste. Marshmallows, oh yes bu11zeye, I said marshmallows. Good.
