2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at meadhall
It’s a toasted gold ale with just a ring of soapy white foam. Smells of applesauce, rich peach and booze, some caramelized sugars and a bit of an immature oak. Taste is sweet, vanilla, nougat and more sweetness – really one dimensional. Medium bodied with lighter carb and a surprisingly dry finish. Not really a fan of this one.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear, copper color with a thin, white head that dissipated quickly leaving no lacing at all. Aroma smells like watered down bourbon with vanilla notes. The taste follows the nose but the bourbon flavor is a little weaker than I expected from the nose. Thin bodied and the alcohol is hidden extremely well. It is a unique beer but somewhat boring.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy amber with a thin white head. Decent retention, minimal lacing. Smells boozy, lemon grass, wood. Honestly smells more like liquor than it does beer but it’s not necessarily off-putting. Taste is odd. A weird malty flavor that is hard to pin down, a little bitterness, and a faint burn from the alcohol. Taste is very different than the aroma would let on. The maltiness is akin to a Marzen but it has a weird twang to it. Mouthfeel is crisp, a little on the light side. This beer is.......interesting. Not really sure how I would sum this one up besides interesting. I love Bourbon but I’m not really getting that from this beer.

Guest tap at Union Brewing. Golden pour with a small white head. Pronounced bourbon in the aroma and taste, but still smooth and drinkable. Nice sipper.

Amber color minimal head, light notes of bourbon on the nose, vanilla, honey, faint toasted coconut. Taste is similar, very smooth, but also kind of lacking. Not bad, but I was expecting more.

My first beer from this state I think. Nice alcoholic taste and aroma too. Quite spiritted due to the aging. It was nice to drink but strong.
