Draft. Pours hazy orange with an off white head. Caramel, spice, fruity, and roasted aroma. Medium body. Flavor has spices, caramel, banana and butter, followed by a nicely bitter roasted finish. My favorite of the night.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Draft pint, at brewery. Pours a hazy amber body with a tight bubbled creamy off-white head that had decent retention. Yikes! the nose is just all diacetyl, somebody filled this keg with liquid slightly burnt buttered popcorn. There’s a touch of yeastiness in the flavor, but it’s really just all buttered popcorn. Stale buttered popcorn. Stale buttered popcorn with lots of kernal husks. The mouthfeel is thinnish with a good bit of fizzy carbonation. No depth here at all. This was just horrid. I drank about 4 ounces just to try and find something decent to say about this and it just wasn’t happening. Yuck.
