3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Comes out of the tap a beautiful dark, reddish amber, almost mahogany, with a fine-bubbled pale ruddy tan head. Malty aroma has a hoppy undertone and a firm hint of cloves and cinnamon. Flavor is mainly malty and has a hoppy, grassy undertone with cinnamon and cloves notes. Firm texture is quite fizzy and just a teensy slimy, but still quite enjoyable.

Draft. At Reno Airport pub. Much better than expected but still nothing special. Pours a light amber with a medium head. Worked well to wash down the crappy fried airport food though I do not remember the specifics on this one.

On-Tap at the Brewery (There for the 04 Reno Air Races)
Brown copper color, a balanced head. Nose of light summer fruity floral hops & watery grain. The flavor is a touch musky & dry but with a light sweetness of raspberries. Finishes balanced, boring, predictable.
