3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Growler, shared with Gabe. Pours a medium, well retained ivory head, with some lacing, over a clear amber (SRM 15) body......nose is toffee/caramel, sweet malt, with rye spice, light pine......taste is rye spice, light toffee/caramel, lightly sweet throughout......mouth feel medium, slightly creamy, with medium carbonation. This, in spite of the ingredients, is a simple beer. It does not taste bad, and there are no major flaws. However, it is just another Specialty beer with minimal characteristics to differentiate it from the crowd. BJCP 7/3/12/4/6

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the brewery. Pour is clear amber in appearance with a small white head and decent lacing. Vegetables, light rye, caramel, soap, and light butyric acid in the aroma. Weird shit, pretty bad. Taste is spicy rye, floral hops, straw, biscuit and grass with a light bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Not bad, but something is really off with the smell and its hard to get past.
