A little bit of a slip from what I expect but drinkable none the less. Decent palate which I can see sessionible.

Kinz (3307) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Draft at RVC, nice to have good choices here! Medium amber, good head. Aroma is bready malt. Flavor is a match. Bready malt, balancing hop bitterness. Just a touch sweet, somehow not entirely clean on the finish. Not bad, but not great either.

Bomber gifted to me from Hutch. Many thanks El Duder-ino! As one might infer, that I, like this beer, am not into the brevity thing. Just for you non-fans, that’s TWO Lebowski inferences and I’m just getting started. A strong aroma of malt upon malt emerges with purpose from the chilled bomber. Beautiful glowing golden amber. Lively abundant carbonation. Yeah this is a pretty sharp beer just visually. Malt focused. Body is robust and swirling with sweet tones on several levels. Some sweet fruit evenly balanced with cereal and malt. Thin horizontal rings of lacing are formed. I love the rhino shaped UPC. A solidly presented seasonal that is the best so far this year.

Tap at fireworks Clarendon courthouse - pours a clear orange in the dim bar light, with a white head. Aroma a bit malty. Has some weight and a bit of a bite of bitterness. Overall, middle of the road for the style.

DiarmaidBHK (3466) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Draft at fire works Arlington. Pours brown with a thin white head that leaves little lacing. Slight malt on the nose. A bit of caramel on the tongue but everything fades as it warms. Clean finish.
