Pint between flights@Dulles airport, 01/09/12. Muddy copper glinting with bronze, slim beige top. Good clove and banana aroma. Chocolate-coated digestives, blueberries, stir of cherry, banana and spice. Nowt special but well-executed and the best beer I’ve had in an airport outside of Munich.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2014 Tasted on tap at San Francisco brew pub in standard pint glass. Poured a dark brown color with yeast/chill haze and moderate beige foam, somewhat lasting with a little fine lace. Excellent aromas of rising dough, fresh baked whole-wheat bread, faint flowery hops and fruity ale yeast esters. Flavors of complex barley malts, mellow wheat, dry roasted grains, soft hops bitterness with some apricot, citrus and dried sour fruits from the fermentation. Medium body and well-rounded mouthfeel. Low carbonation. Lasting bittersweet aftertastes fades to dryness. Delicious. Definitely an underappreciated style.

Bottle. Pours brown with off white head. Some fruit and yeast aroma, taste of fruit and yeast. Bit out of balance.
