Deep amber, great thick foam head. Has a almost rye character. Very easy to put down. From the wall, it did the trick. Another one bites the dust. shared with Grambo after our brew day.

22 oz. bottle. Pours hazy red amber with a large foamy sudsy off white close to khaki head that sticks around for awhile. Aroma is mild mineral malt and faded dry hops. Taste has a faint hop bitterness with the malt taking over with mineral flavors and watered down caramel with dull spice in the finish. Palate is thin/medium with a dry finish. This is nothing special, but an easy drinker when you just want a damn beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bomber pours slightly murky amber with a semi loose tan head of foam. A pale ale? Hmm. The aroma offers up malts, biscuit malts, a dap of nuttiness and I swear I’m getting a Brett like aroma off in the background. Maybe it is just a sharp tart lime like quality. The taste is similar where there’s malts and biscuit malts and a malt like nuttiness riding over the top of tart grapefruit and tart lime like notes. Very interesting beer where in the finish the tart and bitter lime to grapefruit notes keep this from getting too malty into the finish. Interesting odd beer that doesn’t hit a home run but doesn’t strike out either, maybe a sneaky full swing infield single.

Malty APA. The beer works fine but is not anything special. This brew project is certainly interesting, but this one seems to have missed its spot.

Smells like there might be some wild yeast action going on here... Mild sweet tarts and aromatic malt. Odd.
