3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours amber in color with a creamy white head and beautiful lacing. Everything about the appearance of this beer made me want to drink it. Aroma is floral hops, but the taste is balanced nicely between the hops and sweet malts.

Poured into english pint glass, pours a very nice copper color with slight haze. Head was thick and long lasting. Three fingers at first. Some lacing. Co2 was lively. Fairly heavy malt aroma, with a taste of malt followed by some pine and alcohol on the finish. Some bitterness in the finish. Foam till the very end. Light mouth feel, not creamy but slick. Enjoyable and I would by again.

Flaska. Rödbrun med vitt skum. I både smak och doft hittas karamell, gröna äpplen, krispig citrus samt örtighet. Mycket trevligt beska. Fyllig kropp.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Harper’s.
Appearance: Slightly hazy copper body with a creamy tan head.
Aroma: Slight caramel with a light fruitiness, hints of spice, sort of reminds me of a spiced Oktoberfest.
Taste: Light malt with hints of fruity esters and a mild floral hop presence.
Palate: Watery, low carbonation.
Overall: This is a very bland and forgettable beer. I really hate that they call this a cask ale also. I wish breweries would stop using words they don’t understand.

Bottle from eelbasher for Locals 5.5. My first NJ tick.Thanks, Andrew! Pours red brown with a beige head that falls to the edges quickly. Aroma is very malty with a bit of vanilla and green pepper. Taste is caramel malt balanced by some oak tannin and pine hop. carbonation is a bit heavy for the style. Alcohol is more present than I’d expect at 5.5%.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
copper coloured beer with some whitish bubbles for a head. This is a nicely hoppy beer with citrus and pine notes. Just a touch of woodiness sets it apart from being an APA. I liked this a lot

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear tawny with a fairly thick light buff head. Malty, fruity aroma has a hint of caramel. Malty flavor has an apple cider overtone plus snippets of caramel and hops. Texture is firm and smooth, and fizz is not strong but lingers, leaving a rather hoppy finish. Hop on over to your favorite watering hole or package store for one.

Not a huge fan of this one. Foams up a lot with high carbonation that fizzes on the tongue. Bready notes and a bit of a citrus hint as well. Malty, slightly caramel notes present but overwhelmed by the bitter/spicy hop.

Beer engine pour at Race Street Cafe. Nice hazy orange copper color with a frothy off-white head. Lots of lace. Pleasant caramel malt flavors with some dry earthy hops. Tangerine peels. Autumn leaves. Orange pips. Vanilla Tootsie Rolls. Crayons. Slight plastic in the mix. Not bad. Fuller body than expected. Feels nice on cask.

12oz bottle from eelbasher
Appearance: Cloudy amber with a small off-white head and good lacing
Aroma: Smokey and toasted malts
Taste: Toasted malts, woody, smokey with some mild bitterness in the finish
This bottle leaked about 1/4 of the bottle from the cap but when I opened it there was still plenty of carbonation. Nice and tasty
