3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big Hunt, DC pint ($6): Pours a brownish color with a nice head. Aroma is a nice blend of maltiness and hops. This is in a sense a perfect altbier. It is very well-balanced and it maintains the German character, but adds an American element. In honesty, I had about 4 of these in a row, and there is seldom a time at a bar when I order this many of one beer. So far, this has been my favourite offering from Evolution.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy, slightly ruddy brown with a decent, off white head of foam. The nose has a bit of plastic, floral hops, and slight malt notes. The flavor starts off floral but then transitions to the malt with the notes of bread, slight nuttiness, and a touch of caramel. There is a lingering bitterness in the back. Medium to full body with prickly carbonation and a slightly oily mouthfeel. A little unusual but not bad.
