2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Amber-bodied, silken head. Not much aroma. Cereal grain taste with some crystal malt flashes. Rather insipid on the whole. Flat malting and hopping. A fleck of grain. Undercarbonated. Not bad tasting, just largely lacking in flavor.

From a pitcher at the brewery, 17/12/11. Burnt orange under a dissipating white foam. Apricot on digestives aroma. Soft fruit, husky malt. Bit more backbone than the Checker Cab. A little earthy. Decent.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Growler filled at Big Z and consumed later on the same day. Pours a hazy golden brown with a large off-white head that lasted until mid-glass and left ample lace. Pleasant aroma of malt and bread with a bit of yeast in the nose as well. The flavor begins with malt that fades and gives way to a mostly flavorless moderate-strong hops bitterness that borders on being astringent (if that is the right word). A bit harsh on the palate. Light-medium bodied. Not something I would look to revisit.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft. Pours an orange amber body with a mostly white head and thin lacing. Sweet malty aroma, caramel malts, bread tones. A hint of bitter hop tones, light citrus like fruit but rather bland still. Stale bread with a bitter end. Okay.
