3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. Reviewed from notes.
Pours a moderate copper color with a nice off white head. The smell brings forward some mild sweetness, nuttiness, hints of fruit, and some dry bread. The taste is a bit bready with some very light sweetness. Light to medium body with good carbonation. Nice and simple; well executed.
Serving type: on-tap

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap, at brewery. Pours a clear dark amber body with a creamy beige head. Dry toasty malt on the nose with some light fruitiness. Flavor is pretty dry with toasty malt, a touch of huskiness, some yeast, and light roast. Just enough hops on the finish to liven things up. Light to medium bodied with moderate fizzy carbonation. As it warms I’m getting a little crystal malt sweetness on the finish. Decent, not gonna set the world on fire, but it’s drinkable.
