Draft to taster at the new Catawba Valley Tasting Room in Asheville during RBWG. Looks good; a fairly transparent golden orange with white lacing. Smells of balanced hops and pale malt. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

Rrauth (1190) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 3, 2013
Can. Hazy orange. Not much in the way of aroma. Maybe one too many hops. Nothing stands out as aromatic. Everything else is nice it has a weird aftertaste that lingers but nice semi local canned beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

11/26/13. On tap at Barley’s in Asheville. Golden orange pour with a small, frothy off-white head. Mild aroma, mostly malty, some sweet caramel and biscuit, touches of earthy hops. Similarly mild, malty flavor. Doughy, caramel, etc., very little hop presence. Not hoppy enough. Meh.
