3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A pint from a growler thanks to xnoxhatex. I thought this might be good luck for the Bears, but it looks like they needed more than a beer to win the Superbowl. Orange amber in color, a little hazy with a small beige head. A light hoppy nose citrus, fresh malt, a little grainy, (probably due to the freshness and rapid speed they put this out for the big game). Light to medium bodied, malt, carmel, citrus. Although nothing that special a tasty beer for watching the game and drowning my sorrows.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
sample from a growler brought by xnoxhatex to help cheer the bears on in the superbowl. He said it was listed at the brew pub as an APA but it sure tasted like a brown ale. not much in the nose and a very toasted nut, cookie flavor. very uninspiring and unorginal but very drinkable nonetheless. perhaps if this beer was better the bears would have beat the colts.
