3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cigar City Smokes NYC at Rattle N Hum. Big carmel aroma. A brown ale, smooth, bulked up by the carmel. The mate seems like a little tabacco was added. Less sweet than it could be, and that’s a good thing.

Pours a reddish brown with a small white head. Aroma is light vanilla, caramel and roasted malts. Taste is more cocoa and vanilla, raisins. Palate is medium mouthfeel with a bit of stickyness. Not my favorite cigar city brew

Draft at J. Alexanders in Boca Raton, FL. Pint glass. (They pour in frozen mugs so I caught them and asked for a regular glass.) Nice brown clean look with white head. Little lace. Aroma was mild with caramel, makes and vanilla. Taste was very lighter in flavor than I was expecting. Hints of caramel and vanilla. It had a kind of cola taste to it also. Yeasty with a smooth mouth feel.

This one was hidden but rumor had it it was on tap. I casually slipped the barkeep a hundo and he brought me into "THE ROOM" and promised to cut me if spread the word. Was getting kind of drunk by this time but my foggy impression was "Meh." I prefer bigger beers. The ladies will love this one, give it a go.
