Draught at the brewery
Clear orange color. Butter and popcorn nose, with a similar flavor: pale malts, earthy, butter and old socks - complete with a little bit of cardboard and wet dog. Something went wrong here, or is it just me?

Draught, at the brewpub
Orangey-amber colour with a slight haze. Soft aroma of breadcrusty malts and limey-kumquatty hops. These are Pallisades, a variety I’m not familiar with. Slightly orangey, toasty, nutty flavours. Bitterness is moderate, finish is balanced. It’s not a show-stopper, but it’s well-made.
