Tap. Copper pour with some head that retained a lacing around the glass. Caramel, nuts, spice and some soil. Easy to drink and my favorite first drink at Defiant brewery.

on tap in the Mexicali. Not exactly the nicest looking beer I’ve ever seen, murky as it’s name with a small scummy head. Aroma of wheat, yeast and malt. Taste is malt and a dry biscuit and caramel.

Draft with Linh at little town NYC. Pours a deep. Town boy with no head, thin white ring of lacing. Aroma is nutty, sweet caramel malts and a light roast. Mouthfeel is medium to thin with carbonation and notes of light roasted nuts, spice and earth.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2014 On tap at the Mason Jar, where it was called Defiant Dark Lager, and also at Characters in 2014. A very drinkable brew, well balanced with some malty sweetness. Sweet aroma and a bit yeasty too. Pretty good - it went well with a barbeque dinner.

Amber with thin head but lacing still left on the side of the glass. Hint of toasty malt nose. Crisp flavor, a bit dry (hop flavor). A bit cloying finish.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft poured into a weizen glass at Taproom 307 w Andy, Streets, James. Pours a very dark amber with big, frothy white head that leaves stringy, patchy lacing. Smells like wheat and over-the-top yeast. Tastes beady and dry with a very bready, cakey aftertaste. Kind of putrid. I could probably drink it again, but would not order more than one.
