Clear red pour. Nice toasted malt notes present in the aroma and continue in the taste, though they dry out by the end of it. Ends with a hint of nuttyness.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This was OK. Faint aroma of roasted malts. Nice reddish brown color with a white head. Palate was light as with most of their beers. Carbonation average. Flavors were blended well, just needed a little more power. Some malty sweetness with a little hops bitterness. OK, just not unique.

On tap @ Equinox. Amber/copper with a white head. Apple, grass, and paper. Watery aroma, some caramel, and floral hops. Flavor is water, apple, and caramel. A bit of toast, grass, and a papery finish. Kind of a bitter grain thing going on, too.

Tap sample at Mayor of old town.
Clear mahogany color with red hues and minimal head.

Fruity flavors, with some beet, cherry life savers, lo-med bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
So this is typically always a boring style, but among the beers I sampled at Equinox, boring and safe seemed like a good choice. Very mild hops and sweet caramel malts. Some biscuit. Not bad.
