On tap at Cask Republic - New Haven, CT. I don’t think this keg is in the best shape it could be in. Bitter, leafy start to a weak malt middle. Alcohols clean up the finish, otherwise it’s little soft.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
W aromacie nie dzieje się zbyt wiele, nieco karmelu, melanoidyn, ale i lekka piwnica. W smaku gorzkawe nuty przypalonego tosta, nieco karmelu no i charakterystyczna nuta piwniczna, coś pomiędzy starym drewnem a wilgocią. Da się pić, ale nie ma szału.

Pours hazy gold into a shaker. White head with little retention recedes to skim surface leaving spider lacing. Sweet caramel and tangy fruit aromas. Medium bodied with sweet caramel, nuts and bread front to back. Lasting slightly tart fruit finish.

@ Sergio’s / Louisville KY --- Clear deep amber, 2" head that is slow to recede, bubbly wall of lace. Nice looking brew. Taste is pleasantly understated - dark roasted malt that satisfies (maybe, because it is understated), then moves smoothly through the palate to a lightly bittered finish that suits this brew very well. The malt stays on the tongue long after everything else is gone. It seems light, but at the same time, it is really satisfying.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
P: Pours a hazy speckled golden amber body. Capped with a beautiful bone colored half inch of milky head.
S: Sweet sticky caramel, praline, buttery aroma, wheat, orange bitters, sun kist grain and hints of chewing tobacco.
T/M: Raspberries hit the back of the throat on the initial sip and brings forth apple peels, tart lemon and orange swimming around a field of wheat. Strong metallic taste, ground spices and loads of b-vitamin bitterness. Has a faint similarity to rum and coke. Strong tobacco notes in the end like shoveling a hefty helping of Levi Garrett into your mouth.
O: I really liked this beer. I was on the fence when I purchased it but I’m glad I did. Taste was much more complex than the nose. Rich toasted caramel, spice, tobacco what more could you ask for.

Bottle, shared with Parksy. Very hazy deep golden/orange. Nice wheaty biscuit malt with notes of quince and hay. No real hop presence. Very nice session ale.
