BierMeHoos (352) - Maryland, USA - MAR 30, 2015
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.

Bottle from the brewer: Pours a clear copper with a thin white head, aroma has light malts and grassy hops, light bodied, mellow carbonation, starts and ends lightly bitter with a clean aftertaste. A fine brew from an exceptional brewer.

Thorpe429 (5016) - , Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2012
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.
