3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Out of a growler from the brewery. Poured a clear amber-orange color with an inch thick, full, bubbly off-white head that slowly faded to a bubbly layer and left some thick sheets of lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel, light toasted grain, a moderate nuttiness, and a light earthy hoppiness. Smooth, lightly sweet entry with some light carmel and toasted grain that gives way to a lightly bitter, earthy hoppiness with the slightest hint of citrus fruit that transitions into a moderate, almost coffee-like sweetness that lingers into the finish. Moderate carbonation and average mouth feel. Overall, its a decent amber that doesn’t really stand out but it is smooth and unoffensive.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is hazy red with white head, aroma brings notes of grass and pine hops, some slight burnt sugars, biscuit, hints of toffee and some spice in there as well. Taste is a mix of bitter pine and grass, sweet caramel and toffee, the slight burnt character, hints of spice, finishing fairly dry but a mix of bitter and sweet. Interesting brew.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2011 Tap at the brewery. Dark orange brown appearance with a cream colored head. Roasty caramel malty, light piney hoppy nose. Mild to moderate piney hoppy, toasty caramel malty flavor. Piney, caramel aftertaste. Not too shabby.
