3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at the Beer House in Yorktown Center, Lombard, IL.. Displayed a hazed, orangy amber color, with modest white head foam that diminished promptly to a thin ring & film, and left some light lacing. The nose was lightly floral, with light esters, and soft grain. With a fairly light body and soft carbonation, the taste offered just a touch of sweetness, but was ultimately dry finishing. Not overly impressed, but quaffable, with a pleasant blend of rather subdued notes.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
a flash of a wine-like note that immediately disapates. . a super faint cocoa note in both the nose and flavor, more pronounced in the flavor. Slightly hazy dark amber color, minor head disolves quickly. Tangy quality. Mild roast note. a dose of bitterness in the finish. a somewhat creamy quality in the middle.
