Color is a hazy cloudy brown with a slight reddish tint. Flavor is mostly driven by the malts here, but that’s too be expected for this style. Slightly sweet with a little bit of bitterness on the back end.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Growler purchased at the brewery and consumed on 3/13/12.
Pours a hazy dark amber color with a half finger white head that immediately settles into a thin ring. Minimal spots of lace left behind.
Earthy aroma with lots of soil and grassy hops balanced by sweet malt notes. Hints of caramel and toffee followed by bread and biscuit.
Medium bodied with soft carbonation but slightly watered down. Decent balance of earthy, grassy hops, straw, hay, bread and sweet malts. Hints of biscuit, caramel and toffee. Decent but a bit watered down and too earthy/soily tasting for my liking.
