3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A deep amber pour with light white head and lace. Roasted malt with almost no hops on the nose. A light cherry flavor, malty semi-sweetness followed by a nice hop bitter. Thin and a bit foamy but not through the roof. A good beer but just average. Nothing special but clean.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured up on tap at the brewpub copper to near amber with slight haze and tiny white head. The aroma has smooth moderately roasted malts and some mild sweet citrus hops. The taste is much the same with a sweet citrus and malt mixture that runs the flavor from start to finish. Tasty offering with both malty backbone and solid hoppy bite.
