4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewpub - Pours light amber with a thin off-white head. Nose is light floral hops with a touch of butterscotch malt and honey. Taste is light warming alcohol, yeasty, butterscotch bread, and an herbal hop finish. Smooth and slick with a nice big body. Wasn’t expecting to like this as much as I did, but it was excellent.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
In tap @ HotD. Pours cloudy pale amber with very thin head. Aroma is light but roasty malts and floral spice on the finish. Taste is similar: big crisp light malts up front, with oaky spiced hops on the finish. I’ll wager this is the most flavorful lager I’ve ever had. Easy drinking too, which is not the norm here.

Dark orange. Nose is weak. Maybe wheat grass and orange peels. Taste is very sweet. Not overpowering but certainly wears on you. Tobacco finish? Kind of a tree moss note.
