3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark gold body under a one finger fizzy off-white head that faded to a thin film. The nose is nicely citrusy with a nice grapefruit note over a slightly sweet caramel malt base. The flavor is a bit sweeter than I was hoping for, quite a bit caramel and toasty malt sweetness. The bitterness from the hops is really muted by the sweetness. Some decent light bitterness on the back end, but not quite enough to balance out all the malt. Light to medium bodied with fizzy prickly carbonation. Meh, not quite up my alley for the style.

Doesn’t quite reach the 8 points in aroma but comes together good nonetheless. Citrusy, with some sour malt. Pours amber with good head and lacing. Finishes with light sourness and bitterness. I like this. On tap at DC Summerfest.

Drank from the bottle. Nose is resinous and dank. Taste is of pine and tangerines. Very smooth going down, not extremely bitter but it is well balanced, nice hop presence with a medium body and medium carbonation. It is good

(US 2012 backlogged in abstinentia) Tap@Old Glory All American BBQ, Georgetown DC 09/2012. Light and caramalty APA/IPA crossover with gentle citrus notes and maybe a slight uncouth edge - still pleasant, refreshing drinking with a zero yeast profile to go with spicy BBQ.
