3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Shirlington location. Was poured a dark color, still a bit translucent (like soda), carbonation is quite subdued. Aroma is roasted malts, hops are quite present. Flavor is, extremely hoppy - bitterness is quite low, and there’s a heck of a lot more floral and aromatic notes to this one. Enjoyed.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at DC location. Dark brown but light enough to allow some light through. Thin tan head. Light roasted malt aroma. Bitter, decent finish. A lighter take would make this a candidate for a session beer.
