3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Fire Works Leesburg. It pours a hazy copper color with a small tan head. The nose smells lightly of pale malt. The flavor has a slight metallic note with brash hop and light caramel malt notes. A little soapy too. Not too impressive.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 11/21/12
Aroma: This one has a subtle nose of light fruit, caramel malts, and some bready notes
Appearance: It pours an amber-brown color with an orange hue and a beige head
Flavor: The flavor is just a bit dull, it is lightly sweet, and has a mild spice as well
Palate: This one has a soft feel on the mouth, an average carbonation, and a mildly dry finish
I was not super impressed with this one. The style they were aiming for (it was just listed as "Ale" on the menu) was pretty hard to discern from drinking it. There was nothing wrong with this beer, and it had a pretty good mouthfeel, but overall, it was just kind of dull.

Medium-full bodied.
