3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The definition of a tick, to be honest. Orangey copper, decent sized beige head. Caramel, lightly spicy aroma. Flavor is caramel and toast, maybe some light fruit notes, maybe some light spicy notes. Not horrible, but I couldn’t wait to get to the next beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Grainy Munich malt nose. Cloudy dark copper, hazy, with a sudsy beige head. Taste is bitter and grainy, some weird yeastiness and under-done roast, sticky sweetness but no integration or synergy with the subtle, lightly grassy hops. Touch of spice, maybe rye? Medium-full body. doesn’t taste stale, but has a dark gritty tone that I can’t get into.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Sampled on draft at the Rivertown Pub this beer poured a dark orange-amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma was perfume, windex and a bit of tart apple. The flavor was tart with prominent windex and perfume and a bit of tangy apple. The finish was long, sour, tart and bitter. Thin body. Not good at all.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Bigelo’s Bistro. A medium brown with an off white soapy head that quickly dissipates. Not a bad beer at all. Nice fruit, spices that include pepper and cinnamon, and fairly rich malts. I had it with a spicy pizza which did not give the beer a fair chance. Still, it came through as a nice beer.
