2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a dark red-brown color with an enormous foamy orange-white head that lingered and left some lacing. The aroma was spritzy fruity hops with a tangy malty undertone. The flavor was tangy sour caramel with notes of bread, faint fruity hops and a touch of perfume. The finish was long with tangy caramel and perfume. Medium body and fairly smooth. Ok.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery on Christmas Eve. Not sure about the category I entered, an amber lager? Anyway, Pours a clear slightly dark amber color with a large white head. A sweet fruity hop aroma. The flavor is good; clean and fresh, hoppy, with fruity and spicy hops dominating, caramel malts. Very nice.
