3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 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 clear, deep gold. Aroma is very candy like, with spices, citrus peels, and basic malt. Taste is pretty much the same as the aroma. Palate is medium. Overall, I enjoyed a sample of it, but I wouldn’t drink it over some of the other Franklins.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Served in a tulip glass. Came to the table a brassy golden amber color with a skim of a beige head. The aroma featured plenty of candi sugar, cotton candy, bubblegum, bananas, some light cloves, caramel, and touches of lemon. Went down medium-bodied. There were no real surprises taste-wise - candi sugar, bubblegum, caramel, and some bananas were present upfront. There was a subtly crisp and biscuity middle with a hint of vanilla. The slightly dry finish featured just a bit of lemon. Not bad at all.
