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.

appearance: light cola brown, one finger of tan head. aroma: toasted caramel and biscuit malts, light spice, some pine and grassy hops . taste: some caramel and toast, a bit of citrus, pine, and grass, and then a little spice (clove?). finish: clean and dry, slightly bitter. notes: An inoffensive, easy-drinking beer that has a decent amount of character without trying too hard. Felt more like a traditional pale ale than an alt. Would drink again. Bottle from Village Beer & Wine in Rockville.
