2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Thanks to Cavie for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma is toffee, grass and earthy hops. The flavor is not as good. I get some earthy and grassy hops, along with some toffee and iced tea notes. There is also an off-putting cooked vegetable note in the flavor that is not good at all. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From my beer club. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark caramel-amber color with a small tan head that lingered and left some lacing. The aroma was faint tangy, malty and a bit vegetal. The flavor was tangy with a sour malty base that was a touch vegetal and had undertones of caramel, vague fruits and pecan. The finish was medium length tangy and malty. The body was smooth and moderately full. An easy drinking beer that is more pleasant to quaff than the individual elements would suggest. Pleasant.
