Savannah, Ga - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 440 ml can. Iced tea looking pour, very light head. Pretty much of a neutral aroma - hint of bittersweet chocolate. Nice mellow bittersweet flavor with subtle chocolate notes, some strong tea, and a hint of licorice. Appropriate mouthfeel for a bitter. Good session material.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
After waiting an eternity for a single (a 4-pack costs $10 at Spec’s), my patience was rewarded in Austin, as I bought a single for $1.50. Thank goodness I only bought one... Aroma is wet autumn leaves soaked in dank maple syrup and wet biscuits. Flavor is coppery malt and stale biscuit. Pours an average tea brown, by the way. Watery mouthfeel. Good thang I only spent $1.50 on one.

Total Wine & More, Chantilly 14.0oz can ($1.50): Pours a brownish colour with a creamy head. Aroma is mostly caramel malt with some hops. Taste is slightly metallic with a bunch of caramel malt. A small amount of hop bitterness is present. Easy drinking and it has a nice mouthfeel, but as a beer in total, it ain’t that great.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
440ml can, a gift from theisti, thanks! Served in a flared pint glass, a couple minutes out of the cold fridge . Reddish/copper colored with a one fingered off white head, brilliant clarity and steady carbonation. Nose is woodsy/earthy & caramel with some hints of pomme fruits. Mouthfeel reveals a low to moderate carbonation, with a touch of body at first, but thinning out at the end, but not becoming overly thin. Taste is earthy and woodsy with a bit of dark caramel and toffee. The woodsy flavor lingers in the finish. Balanced finish. A touch too balanced for a bitter.
