2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Growler from the source thanks to brainlair. Pours a low haze, dirty pond water. Medium white foam is there. Ok lacing. Nose is not good- celery, very intense dirt like iron heavy, fresh dirt just kicked up in your face, and then some cigarette. Taste is lemon tea, some oil, some decent maltiness. Very clean tasting, decent body.

On tap @ HOTD brewpub in Portland. Hazy deep bronze, lacy white head. Thick hay and cereal aroma, spicy and piny nuances. Earthy dried grass, light resin, soft mouthfeel. Holy crap this is nice for the ABV!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at HOTD Tasting Room. Sourish fruit aroma. Copper-orange color. Initial is sweaty and light tobacco; mid palate is mild and lightly fruity; final smooth, gentle bitter. Doesn’t really taste as light as the alc. level really is. Fun stuff.

Draught (3,2%) @ the brewpub
Aroma is sweet with apricot, some peaches and hay. Feels like fruit candy. Flavour is slightly sweet and fruity with hay. Finishes with lingering hops. Refreshing. Not your typical bitter.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours beautifully, amber color with a creamy head. Bottle conditioned. Good lacing. Aroma is bready with a slight hop. Taste is what impresses me. Very complex flavor a bit spicy with malt, rye. Mouthfeel is thick and smooth. Some carbonation. Very impressive.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at HOTD. Pours to a golden body with a starch white head. The aroma is hoppy but rounded like a mild. Almost like a pineapple. The flavor is hoppy with bitter grass and grapefruit. Big taste for such a small beer. Notes of floral hops. Bitter but balanced mouthfeel. This is a phenomenal session ale. I would drink this a LOT if available in my market in Wisconsin.
