2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Great Divide - was told this was made from the second runnings of Hercules and sits at around 3.5 abv - they may as well call this Hercules Bland - practically nothing happening here - perhaps I am spoiled, having tried the HOTD little dog beers, and having a world class dark mild made in town (Hogshead) - this just tastes hollow - some dry, flavorless yeast - light crackery malt - slight bitterness - no flaws, just extremely boring.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Great Divide from their pilot system. Pour is clear golden with a long-lasting, bright white head. Raw hops, wet dog, bread, grass, and dough in the aroma. Taste is grass, ligh weed, biscuit, malt, light phenols, and bread with a light bitter finish. Light body with high carbonation. Not bad, but nothing really special.
