3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap in Marshall. Amber-brown in color, sizable head, similar to many harvest ales. Aroma is notably not very hoppy - instead it is mild and mostly malty. Flavor, likewise, lacks any strong hop character, but it is a decent, mildly hoppy harvest ale.

Draft... Medium copper, nice tan creamy head... Weak ass nose for a wet hopped beer, light hops, a bit of toffee, wet grains... Light taste but really good, nice malty backbone with smooth finish
