2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught. Pours a clear amber color with a moderate white head. I get almost no nose on this. Despite that, it was surprisingly flavorful, with a kick of some spice in there that I can’t quite place. I liked it more than I thought I would.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Fullsteam. Pours a clear amber. Webby lacing. Nose is odd but good- squashy noble style hops, rye, earthy bread. Taste is a bit sticky, spicy, rich and dense. Rustic and heavy. Clean. Quite hoppy with noble style hops. I like this one. IPA profile on a lager.

This one I’ve had a few times. Clean coppery pour with one finger of sandstone head. Nose is slightly grainy with bready notes and a light sweetness balanced by an herbal hop character. Slightly vegetal. Bready flavor with an upfront herbal hop character with notes of hay and sweet toasted grain.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a rich, deep amber color with a substantial, creamy, medium-tan head. The aroma is faint but pleasant, with a combination of cereal grains, a light woodsy mustiness, and a little caramel sweetness. The flavor is much more pronounced, with characteristics of sweet brown bread, a little butterscotch, and a nice pine and floral hop bitterness. The fine, light carbonation is active yet unobtrusive, but it allows the bready sweetness to linger a bit more than I would have liked.
