3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the Livery. Pours like color of clover honey. Smells like a clean lager, but with character. Taste also starts lager-like, but then turns on the hop and malt profile and becomes pleasantly sweet. Nice and clean, if unremarkable.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark dark amber, well hazed, with small white head that dissipates to a film. Aromas are faint, lightly malty but not much going there. Initial is lightly sweet, throwing some fruity notes, light hoppy bitterness. Apple fruit, light spice make this beer very quaffable overall. Finishes mellow sweetness, near non existant bitterness. Very nice overall.
