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.

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 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.
