3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
10oz pour at DC Brau’s 3rd Anniversary Party at Meridian Pint. Pours a hazy orange with a ring of white head. Nose is interesting, boozy, some raw corn, white whiskey, wood shavings, pinot gris, a little candlewax, some birch. Flavor is cool, boozy, woody, a hint of mild malt, a little cooked greens, some birch. Fairly clean finish. Neat treatment.

Draft at Meridian Pint for the DC Brau 3rd Anniversary party. Sweet, I got the last of that keg on my second pour. Poured a slightly cloudy golden color with a medium sized head. Flavor was some light cereal notes, light malts, with some vanilla, barrel and wood. Nice Maple notes in this one. Sweet body - both with cereal malts and the maple notes from the barrel. Very nice, enjoyable, barrel adds a nice touch to this one.
