2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at Hilltop. Copper colored. No head. No is faint with mild malts and light hops. It seems wtaered down as I can barely smell any of it. Taste is earthy hops and some light spice and malt. Not very flavorful either. Avergae. Body is a bit thin and watery. Finishes with very faint echoes of the flavor. Needs work.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Huge head and dark red. Hardly any aroma. Smooth, but there's little character. Ultimately, it's a little boring.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
The color is right lightish copper, but not much head to speak of. Minimal aroma and taste. Neither are bad, just not much there. Minimal bitterness on the finish. Very light bodied, should be a wee bit heavier. Dissapointing.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copper in color with minimal head, which seems to be a trait common to all their beers. Nice earthy hop nose. Earthy hop bite through the middle and finish with no malt profile to complement. Body is thin and watery. Finish is bitter. This beer could really go places with some malt content and a little attention to mouthfeel/body.
