On tap at Barcade, pours murky reddish brown with small white head, alright lacing. Aromas and flavor are a malt mess, lots of caramel, sweet malt, grape juice, and bread biscuits. Medium to fuller body, with a good bit of carbonation. I never enjoy these malt forward American pales.

Tawny colored pour. Slight off-white colored, medium-sized head. Some lacing, but not much. Malty aroma with a slight iced-tea note. Malty flavor with notes of biscuit and bread. Slightly hoppy on the finish. Not too bitter. Quite pleasant.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
The nose is caramel balanced with grass and citrus. Nice. Pours a clear dark amber with an off-white ring and minor lacing. The flavor, initially, is slightly sweet followed by a grassy/citrus finish. Balanced. A somewhat bitter aftertaste is also present. Medium-light body and moderate but crisp carbonation. Overall, I can see why this could be a session beer, but one will do it for me for now.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a copper color with a finger of eggshell foam. The nose is malt forward with a touch of sweetness and some grassy stale hops and a trace of citrus. The palate follows but is a bit more refreshing than the nose. Nice balance between round toasted amber malts and grapefruit bitterness. Pretty refreshing and easy to drink.

pours hazy amber with a generous off white head that lingers--caramel malty aroma with a snap of
resinous hop notes--light and creamy malt up front
with a bitter slightly off finish--it’s OK/ not special
