3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft in Normal. Pours a turbid amber with a thin tan head. Nose is minty, isopropyl, caramel and earth. Low malt and moderate hops. On tasting, sharp bitterness with a leafy and flinty note. Earth and low alcohol. Light sweetness into a very dry finish. Clean overall but id clean up the bitter notes some to even this out. Also, needs to crash more or a step mash to clarify. Nice stuff.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at champaign brewpub. Pours reddish clear amber with no head. Fairly hop forward with some slight roaster spiced malt character. Noting special but definitely not offensive. Decent session beer especially if you prefer yours on the hoppy side.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Wildly malty with an earthy, dark, bitter hop backbone. America, fuck yeah! Nothing much at this brewery impressed me.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub: The head didn’t last long on this deep amber beer, but it left a lot of lace in its wake long after the demise. Very lively carbonation. The aroma was kind of faint - caramel, a touch of cream corn, and an earthy bitterness. It had a flavor of caramel, dark toast, and earthy hops with a mildly bitter finish. Actually quite a sessionable brew.
