3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
20140823 Tap (growler) from State Line. This was a pleasant surprise. I asked for a sample and because the tap was next to some other pils, after my jello-shot sample of the stuff, I asked the young man if he’d poured the right beer. This one seems out of place in the DFH lineup, with little of their house character, and plenty of clean and lovely marris otter malts. It is delightfully sweet, yet clean and crisp: saltines and raw white corn. The hops are soft and give the mildest ambrosia and hay-like dryness. the beer itself is a hazed pale golden with small but lingering white wisps that stick. Absolutely pleasant surprise, and perhaps overrated as a result, but I’d buy this regularly by the 12 pack in cans.

Draft at Holy Hound. Hazy pale yellow color, huge white head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of black pepper and biscuit dough (I thought my notes said burnt dog, but I figured it out). Taste is crisp, clan peppery hay.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft: Poured a light copper color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of light fruity ester with some light dry caramel malt with a dry floral hops presence that is also noticeable. Taste is also dominated by dry caramel malt with a dry and slightly bitter hops presence. Body is pretty full for style with good carbonation. Well brewed for the style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler fill from the brewpub. Pours a clear light gold color with a white head that settles to a film. Aroma is light - malt, fruit/citrus hops and some bread. Body is medium-light. Taste has a nice balance between the malt and hops, the bready malt and bittering hops play well together and then the finish citrusy hops come in afterwards. Finish is fairly clean, a little bit of the citrus sticks around. Interesting interpretation.
