3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2012 Location: Draft at Little Rock Brewpub, 2/16/12
Aroma: The nose is fairly subtle with some caramel malts, citrus hops, and sugary notes
Appearance: The pour is a clearish orange color with a small off-white head and fairly heavy lace
Flavor: Fairly sweet, more of the sugary then the caramel, with a decently strong citrus/resin hop bitterness
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has a mildly sticky feel, a fairly soft carbonation, and a dryish finish
I thought that this one was an interedting beer. I like that they tried to make something fairly uncommon (at least I don’t see a ton of beers like this at many brewpubs). I thought it was good, but I still didn’t think it was a standout.

Sampled at Franklin location. Clear yellow gold, frothy white head. Aroma reminds me of shitty malt liquors. Tastes the same. Not a fan. Hops seemed very muted and dull.

Draft sample at Boscos Squared.
Poured clear dark brown color with average white fizzy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted grainy and sweet aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium toasted grain sweet flavor with a medium toasted sweet finish of moderate duration
Solid drinkable brew and good for style.
Very interesting brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
[march 17, 2009]
On tap. Pours slightly hazy copper with a tall head. I was surprised to find how hoppy this is. Citrus and green tea were noticeable in the aroma. The flavor is cleanly sweet with constant hops on the palate. The description misled me a bit. This is no more than an American pale ale when you get down to drinking it, but it is actually rather well done.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sample from the Nashville brewpub. Poured a clear amber/red color with a thin off white head that quickly disappeared. The aroma was mainly sweet malt. Earthy notes were fairly muted, but present. The flavor wasn’t great. A small bit of diacetyl was present, with caramel malt dominating the palate. Again, not much of a bitterness in the finish. Rather plain. Not a big fan of this one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft-Memphis. Murky pale brown in color with a white head. Hops are more present than the 53 IBU indicates and they balance well with this malty brew.
