3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a fantastic esb and as such would serve as a perfect session beer. Light spicy hops reminiscent of crisp fall leaves tops a burnt siena beer with a nice head. Goes down smooth with a trace of old world deliciousness left in the mouth. I want more of this. On tap at the brewpub.

Pours amber and opaque with a thin white head. Smells of christmas trees, and wild flowers. Tastes caramelly with some nice peppery notes. I think I’m officially sold on this brewery’s creations.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Lake Placid location. Hazy orangish pour with no head (Bartender error). Malty aroma, mild hop aroma. Chewy malt with a nice hop presence. This is tasty. Not as bitter as I would have expected, but well balanced. Sweet, solid, oily mouthfeel. Coats the tongue. Nice lacing on my brother’s glass.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub. Mildly piney/peppery hop aroma with some small amounts of toastiness in the nose. Mildly hazy copper color with a frothy off-white head and nice lacing. A bit roasted to start, turning a strange sweet and caramelly citrus-like flavor. A bit dry with some tannin-like bitterness. Sweet and bitter with a bit of mustiness. This just never really comes together for me.
