2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
In the Cigar City tasting room. Light red. A little cloudy. It smells and tastes of a light inoffensive beer diluted with water. Not difficult to drink but not very flavorful at all.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at federal taphouse. Not quite clear red pour with small white head. Aroma of caramel, a tad woody, light oak, light cidery notes, quite strange. Flavor is malty, quite thin, a bit watery. Well carbed with light body. Interesting idea, but I don’t think the end result is right.

pours amber with a thin white head. Aroma of cedar, and slight caramel malt. Taste follows, light cedar, doesn’t overpower, malt and not much else. This is a decent, light, easy to drink wood aged beer.
