3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at the brewery - slightly lighter and cleaner than their Ofest - a bit of clean cane sugar sweetness, as well as some light toffee/caramelization in the flavor, complimented by a light note of toasted grains - mild nuttiness on the tail end - straightforward - approachable - no discernible flaws - just lacks any standout character.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma - pretty basic malt;
Appearance - amber, very fluffy head, decent lacing;
Taste - malty front, back is bittersweet, dry finish with a bold alcohol burn;
Palate - nice body, somewhat crisp;
Overall - though true to the original style the high ABV of this brew does not blend well throughout, pretty refreshing however despite this.
