Draught at the Yard House, Honolulu, HI
Brown color with red shades, creamy head. Light but nice aroma of roasted nuts and roasted malt. Smooth mouthfeel, with moderate nice flavor of roasted malt and nuts; correct bitterness.
It has a good balance, nice beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light brown colour. Aroma is mild. Taste has a caramel note first, maybe a touch of toastiness. There’s a bit of tartness in the finish that wasn’t evident at the brewery, but is in the can. That’s disappointing. Mild malts are about it, a basic brown.
