3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Maria’s. Pours a deep red, quite clear with a frothy white head. Nose is freshly hoppy, citrusy and fruity. Toasty malt in the background as well. Very clean, light caramel that works. Taste is crisp and clean, moderate bitterness with rounded hop flavor, citrus. Low caramel and a toasty quality. Solid Amber.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Hough’s in Pittsburgh. Nothing to rave about here and disappointed that Great Lakes has been dragging through the mud of late. Hope they get better down the road.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Piney and citrusy nose that is overcome by caramel malts. Dark reddish with thick, off-white head. Taste has similar effect, moderate hoppy notes, mostly piney that give way to caramel malts. Slippery on the tongue. Never quite commits to the bitterness or the sweetness.

On tap at P&P Charleston. Clear Amber with medium beige head. Aroma is herbal hops, medium body, lower carbonation, and a little lacing. Taste is piney hops , some slightly roasted hops, and bitter finish. Not my thing.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A good middle of the road beer. Aroma was burnt caramel, stale beer and earthy hops. Pour was a nice dark gold with a one finger off white head. Taste was a little disappointing. Thin and watery...almost like a Stone Arrogant Bastard with less flavor. Decent carbonation. Drinkable at best
