4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Heavy malt, caramel, and milk shocolate, moderate hoppiness of flowers and pine, oak, toffee, honey, syrup, and alcohol. Head was small, off white mostly diminishing with fair lacing. Medium hue, amber in color. Light sweet and acidic with moderate bitterness. Very tasty and drinkable the more you drink the better it taste with the hops fading to the back ground and the malt really shining through. Overall a very excellent Pale Ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap 7/15 @ "The Second City" comedy theater in Chicago. Pours amber in color with a thin off-white head that diminishes rather quickly.
Aroma has hints of a floral hops with some spices. Flavor is sweet and malty with a mild bitter finish. I found this well balanced and easy drinking since I had several pints during the comedy revue.

Pours a nice amber color with medium head and a little bit of lacing. A mix of flowery hops and caramel malt in the aroma. The malt flavor comes out when I take a drink. Easy drinking, nice on the palate.

Bottle at Galileo Cafe, O’Hare Airport, Chicago. Hops and spiciness apparent. Definite notes of black pepper. Akin to Sam Adams in flavour but not mouthfeel. Short, easy finish - great alternative to all the macro crap available at the airport if you’re passing through.
