3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a thin ivory head, with minimal lacing, over a clear amber copper (SRM 15) body....nose is toasted malts, with light toffee/notes, mild herbal hops, balance to the malts......taste has hints of toffee/caramel sweetness to start, hints of cocoa becoming dry, slightly sharp hop bitterness.....mouth feel, light body, no alcohol, moderate astringency. The malt backbone is a bit too simple in both aromas and flavors. The hops are as a result slightly too prominent. A slight rework of the malts, with more Vienna character would make a better beer. BJCP 7/3/12/4/6

Bottle from ericandersnavy or baby butternuts, whatever he wants to be called these days. Pours a deep copper to red with light tan head. Aroma is wet metal, burnt orange and slight wet malt. Taste is more metallic and malty with some slight burnt caramel. Extremely dry. Nice change in a style I’m not used to.
