3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Green Dragon and Moon and Sixpence in Portland, OR--Poured a thick amber-copper body with a thick dissipating white head. Nose is quite creamy and caramelly. A bit to English buttery for my liking. Crisp and clean mouth feel, but flavor wasn’t my thing so much.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the PDX Green Dragon. Pours dark amber with a tall white head. Balanced nose of caramel malts and citrus hops. This was a nice well balanced beer, not over the top hops, allowing the malts to make their presence known. Crisp finish and good body to this one. Not as hoppy as I remember Cinder Cone to be.
