3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2015 At Bad Apple. I’m going to need to try this again as I kept getting a big cherry flavor while drinking it. Not like a lambic but like cherry pie. Other than than it was a decent beer with a nice dark color and malty back bone. Serving: tap

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the August 5 2008 Brewmasters dinner. Amber, creamy off white head. Strong caramel malt aroma, earthy nutty flavor. A little bitter hint at end, quite good.

Redish amber colored. Semi-hazy. Head is decently sized, and leaves light lacing. Aroma is very light, with only hints of flowery hops. Buttery flavor, sligthly rubbery tasting. Bitterness is quite low for a so-called ESB.

this was the first of the 6 that were on my paddle. its very drinkable. once again the hops are uniue to this place and give off a nice floral flavor. although in this brew its rather mild compared to the others.
