3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted 4/27/08. 6oz sample from the brewpub. Big bubbled. Filtered with an amber ruby hue. Slight nose. So crisp. So smooth. Touch soggy hops. Medium bodied. Good hop profile and very well melded. Mild effervescence. Mild toast. Spicy with a slight smokey character. Totally solid! My second favorite from this brewery.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a growler a day after getting one. The body was dark amber and copper . The aroma was earthy with some floral hops. There was also toffee and iced tea. The taste was black tea with some oranges and light potatoes. A pretty good version of a style I don’t usually like.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap: Deep amber with reddish highlights topped by a nice creamy head and very good lace. The aroma has notes of grassy and aromatic hops, slight caramel and biscuity malt, walnut and a hint of seasalt. The taste has a crisp bitterness with an herbal background supported by a layer of sweet grainy malts. Slight medical finish however. The mouth feel is thin, refreshing, dry and short. A simple drinkable brew.
