2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear amber with a slight orange hue and a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a strong butterscotch note with some sweet grains and a bit of light fruit. Flavor has a bit of sweet grain and bread but it is mainly full of butterscotch. Off putting.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap at Rowlands Calumet Brewery. Amber with a thin off-white layer on top. Aroma of butter and caramel malt. Taste is once again way too buttery with caramel, malt and salt. Not very good.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at the brewpub, pours a clear orange with no head and no nose. Tastes like wort, which is to say, it’s not beer yet. Earthy, bad bitter, not terrible, but there are better selections here.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This beer pours a dark clear amber colour with a small, thin white head. Well carbonated, moderately malty aroma- not overly dry but somewhat acidic. Taste is very light, but pleasent.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Last one of the 11 brews tried at the brewpub in one afternoon. Pours an off-redish amber with a thin white head that reveals a good lacing patern inside the glass. Aroma is sweet caramel, walnuts, some citrus and flowery hops. Taste is smooth with a citrus and caramel after taste. Finish is very well balanced with some nut character to the palate. Quite nice.

Really enjoyed this. Similar to the fest, except this had some more sweetness. Great balance between malt/hops.
