3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Shirlington location. Arrived at table, unknown how long since pour as head was still noticeable, but quite small. Light clear (translucent) red color. Aroma is a sweet, cherry one, with touches of malts, caramel, and a tinge of citrus. Flavor is certainly cherries, but a bit more subtle than I had expected.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Light and bright brown, thin white head, moderate lacing. Aroma of cherry soda. Taste has a bitter hop background, with sweet fruit overlay. Taste likes a bad beer with cherry syrup added. There was no drain nearby, so I just left it on the bar.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Downtown location on 04/06/10. Arrived at the table an amber/light mahogany color with a skim of a tan head. A sweet aroma of Red Delicious apples, overly ripe cherries, a bit of caramel, some slightly tangy yeastiness, and grapefruits in the background. Medium-bodied. The flavor starts with light caramel and some Red Delicious apples. Overly ripe and very sweet cherries follow along with a yeastiness. Some grapefruits at the end. The taste is pretty sweet with a good deal of candied sugar all the way through. Pleasant enough to have another.
