3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at ravenous pig... Pours a hazy soft caramel hued elixir with medium transparency. And topped with a thin to medium soapy light beige head... Toasty caramel and soft grains, lightly fruity and finishes with a fair amount of grassy earthy hops... Flavors are more of the same with more abundance on the fruity tones alongside an earthy bitterness that comes firth quickly thereafterwards. Soft caramel and grains play a lesser role but not completely absent. Shy if medium bodied with semi-lively carbination.

Pours clean translucent copper with a big creamy light beige head! Aroma brings light clean sweet malts and a bit of apple. Flavor brings sweet malts with a tiny touch of clean apple tart and bitterness expected from the style. The body is super creamy and pleasant on nitro.

Pours a dark caramel brown color with a one finger head into my ccb snifter. Caramel malts with a great balance of bitter hops on the nose and the taste is intensified. This is a well crafted easy drinking session able beer. I could drink this all day!

Nitro at Pinocchio’s. Brown with a smooth head, the aroma is caramel with a hint of fruit. The flavor is caramel sweet with some of the fruit. A touch of work along with just a bit of bitterness to balance.

Tap at Redlight. Clear brown pour with an off white head. Nice bready malt, noble euro hops in the aroma. Nice toffee, bready malt body with just a dash of earthy hops in for bitterness. Good session brew.

Creamy white head floating atop a coppery pool of beer. Plenty of lacing. Fruity malt aroma. Sweet malty flavor with a very slight metallicness. Not bad.
