3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap: The aroma consists caramel, toffee, fruit raisin, and a touch of roasted nuts. It’s a hazy (bordering on cloudy) orangish-brown with a small beige head that fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. There is some spotty lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with caramel, toffee, light citrus, and a touch of dark fruit. The finish has light roasted nuts with a hint of banana and herbal notes. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation.

On tap at the brewpub. Poured a dark amber color with minimal white head. Aroma was dark fruit and a little yeasty. The flavor was a little sweet and a slightly hoppy finish. Not bad.

Tasted on tap at the Harmony Brewing Company in Grand Rapids. Blandish, too malty for my taste, but good balancing hops.

Growler thanks to mikem409: Poured a reddish orange with thin white bubble head, that dissipated fast. Aroma is strong boozy dark fruits and caramel malts. Taste is nice fruit and very yeasty, there is a nice sweet stickiness to it. A bit flat from its travel but still a good beer.

Pint at the brewpub, two fingers tan head with mostly opaque red dark brown color. Yeast on the nose, slight fruity note, some grass. Medium body, good carbonation. Slight hop bitterness, we’ll balanced, yeast flavors lack what a typical begin style has, but there is still a nice sweet fruit flavor to it. Good beer.
