3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Franklin’s Restaurant, Brewery & General Store in Hyattsville, MD, part of a flight of 10. Appearance is dark amber red to brown ruby clear body. Aroma is strong, with malt and sour dough bread, almost super sour. Taste is earthy, a bit too much for me. Palate like an Irish Red Ale. Its a decent beer, but Franklins has some others that are much better.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap at Franklin’s.
Pours a moderate amber color with a bit of an off-white head. The nose brings a bit of amber malt along with quite a bit of buttery diacetyl. The flavor has even more buttery diacetyl. Quite off-putting. Medium body with a creamy, buttery finish. Just way overtaken by diacetyl. Quite unfortunate.
