3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at the North Market Fiery Foods Festival on 2/18/12. Clear copper color with a thick tan head. Malty nose with caramel, nuts, earthy hops and a touch of pepper. Flavor is equally caramelly and malty with grassy and earthy hops and a touch of heat in the finish. More subtle on the hops than expected, especially from CBC. Tastes more like an American amber or even a brown.
