3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap, Brewpub. Pours a light ruby-red with a smallish head. Sweet aroma of malt and some candied fruit (cherry?). Palate is smooth, medium-bodied, and crisp carbonation. Flavor is primarily sweet throughout with a touch of roasts, but a bit too heavy on butterscotch-sweet for me at times. Finishes refreshing, perhaps because of some hops for balance and crispness.

Draft at the brewpub. The manager noticed padrefan and I actually smelling and swirling and talking about our beers, so he came over and let us try a few extras. He gave us this beer in the Dry hopped/Nitro version as well as the regular. I liked the dry hopped version better. More of everything really. Nice hoppy aromas and a very decent toasted malt on the flavor. Pretty good

3.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
My favorite taster. Thanks to the crappy little glass, I could barely detect some grassy aroma. The flavor had good bitter hops on a toasty backbone. Well balanced with a lasting finish.
