3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Tadg’s. Nose of chocolate, caramel, light fruits, something peppery. Flavor similar. Not a whole lot of bold malts as you would expect in a brown, not too sweet, a bit spicy and peppery, though I was not told it was hemp in it, and would never have guessed. Maybe a touch of refer in the nose after being told. Decent, but not that special.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a thin head on a clear deep red colored body.
The aroma is pretty mild overall... some grain, maybe.
The taste is mild as well. There is a slight dry bitterness and some honey.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
It lacks any real aroma or taste.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Draught. Poured red brown with very little head. Aroma was unfamiliar at first and then it struck me, sea water and wet rope. Flavour of syrup and dagga, rather more sweetness than is decent in a beer. Almost syrupy body. More hemp and a tiny bit of malt in the finish. The beer was not as good as my rating, but I give Caldera credit for trying something new.
