2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap @ brewery. Pours a beautiful orange/gold with a perfect, minimalist head that lingers. But it smells and tastes earthy and metallic. Hoppy, but not smooth, without enough malt to balance.

Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Malty, toffee like aroma. The flavor has some crystal malt/toffee-like sweetness, along with lighter floral and earthy hop notes. Decent.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fresh, 12oz local bottle. Pours a clear amber colour with a small khaki head and nice lacing. Rather sweet aroma from citrus hops and caramel maltiness. Nice flavour that balances the malt and hops fairly well but maybe a little lighter than expected. Pleasant and easy drinking but I could see where this could dull quickly if not fresh.
