Tap at the brewpub in Napa. Amber pour with a nice full white head. Aroma is very mild. Palate is light to medium. Taste is sweet caramel malts, then just a hint of bittering hops late.

Draft at the brewpub. Poured a clear dark orange color. Head was thin and off white. Aroma and flavor of biscuity malt and light flowery hops accented by mild hop bitterness. Pretty standard.

Pours amber red color with offwhite head. Aroma is a bit malty with slight earthy hops. Flavor is pretty bitter and abrasive and not well balanced at all. Overall, not too good.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft. Rich reddish-amber beer with an off-white head. Rich caramel flavor with lots of bittering hops. Some astringency. Lower hop aroma than expected. This one seemed to have too much bittering hops and no where near enough flavor hops.
