3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Beachwood Brewing. Copper colored pour with a white head. Nose is nicely floral, some citrus zest bite, and toasted bread. Caramel malt, pine, and a surprisingly fruity, estery character, too. The flavor is very sweet. Brown sugar and caramel dominate. Lots of grass and straw. Pine and a harsh bitterness on the finish. Light citrus and some floral hops.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Fifty Fifty. Clear golden amber, with white head. Caramel malt, grains, light citrusy hops. Pretty mild on the bitterness, more malt centered. It’s ok.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(on draught at FiftyFifty). Pours a hazy copper color with an off-white head. Aroma is bread, resin, pine and caramel malts. Taste is sweet with some bitterness. Medium bodied with an oily texture. Dry, bitter finish. Seems off-balanced to me.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A fairly mellow beer. Some biscuty flavors. A little malt backbone. A nice caramel color with little to no head (could have been the spectacularly shitty service we had delaying the beer reaching the table). Not much in the way of aroma.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the brewery. Copper color in the glass with a thick white head and excellent lacing. Caramel nose and taste. Hops help balance but malt sweetness stays with me.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[Tap] Pours a copper shade with about a half inch of cream colored head. Hops and biscuits in the aroma. Light hints of spice are also evident. Simple caramel base to the flavor profile. Citrus and light piney hops throughout. Average carbonation and mouthfeel. Not very complex, but a decent and sessionable brew.
