Draft at Cork n Bottle. Pours a copper orange color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor had a malty base that favored caramel, and lightly toasted bread. Additional notes of light butter, floral hops and a touch of grass come through. Aroma was mild overall.

Tap at C&B Cinci, some light hops in this one, but there just isnt enough flavor here, it goes down easily despite its ruby-ish color.. but needs more hop bittering

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft sample at JJís. I thought this was really tasty for a style that trends towards the bland and unexciting. Nice rich malt flavors with a silky smooth mouthfeel that almost seemed like it was on nitro. Pleasant.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent copperish orange with foamy off-white head. Smells malty and slightly bitter. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Not bad.
