2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is fairly light with some caramel malts and light hints of citrus hops. Flavor is mostly sweet from the malts with only just a hint of some hop character. Not that good of a brew.

bottle @ Vino Bellissimo / Lima OH --- Clear mahogany amber with an over-zealous (takes over the glass - 6"+) tan head, globs of lace. Nice aroma of malt and hops. Taste is dark caramel malt that grows some in the palate before adding citrus hops in a finish that lingers into straight bitter. A good "American" ESB - lots of body good malt and hops.

12oz bottle pours a hazy brown with tons of frothy white head. Nose has some earthy malt, honeycomb but also a lot of wet paper bag, cracker too. Flavor has walnut skin, toast, wet paper bag. Herbal finish. Just bad.

12oz bottle into La Petite Tulipe - head galore! nose is sour and full of foam - yay old fucking beers. I will need to rerate this. this is probably even older than the Ohio Brewing Cardinal beer I’m storing for some reason. Tastes like metal... gross.

Draft at a Max & Erma’s in Dayton. Poured a medium reddish amber, slight head. Aroma was faintly of caramel malts. Flavor matched, with some slight earthy hop notes on the finish that kept it from being too cloying. Fairly full bodied. Definitely boring. Not bad, but just wasn’t my cup of tea. Or mug of beer.
