3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle to taster (thanks tmoney99). Looks decent; a murky burnt-orange with thin white lacing. Smells of semi-sweet malt and a little hops. Tastes the same with an average mouthfeel. Not bad.

On Tap at the brewery. Amber orange color with a white head. Aroma is lightly malty, slight caramel, a bit of earthy hop presence. Flavor is similar. Slightly sweet, slightly bitter. Balanced and laid back. Good beer.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy, amber brown with a short off-white head.
Scent is caramel malt....though a bit faint.
Taste is more toffee-like, smooth, a hint of bitter, herbal hops.
A very smooth, balanced beer.

Bottle. Poured a dark copper color with an average to large frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting and had excellent lacing. Good balanced malt and hop aroma. Medium body with smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate balanced smooth flavor with a medium balanced finish of moderate duration. Good brew.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Buttery caramel malt and tea aroma. Hazy amber with a small ivory head. Sweet buttery caramel flavor. There seems to be a diacetyl issue going on with this one. Medium body, light to flat carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smooth, malty, a little hint of fruit, and a dry finish. Very balanced and overall, a great session ale.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Serving: Draft. It pours a light amber color with a slight, white head. The nose has notes of butter and caramel. The flavor has metallic notes with slight butter, grain, and an off bitterness. Serious flaws with this brew.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from whole foods Reston - pours a clear amber with a thin head. Aroma is meaty-malty with a piney hop finish. Taste is gets progressively bitterer as it goes down palate is dry. Overall, not bad, but this isn’t my style.
