2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Mc Nellies OKC. Dark brown, filtered with a foamy head. No nose-too cold. Taste is very malty with a low hop profile. Low alcohol and a bit sharp. Sessionable and drinkable-well done for what it is.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz waxed and capped bottle from Dansting. Pour is hazed orange golden, unfiltered with floaties and a 4 inch fairly thick off white head. Aroma of dusty woody malt, some soft tart cherry fruit. Taste is the cherry sweet and woody toasted malt of the nose, flavors are different and interesting, though are both accented by a cardboard oxidation element. As it warms, the resin wood malt really takes over, and the fruit fades. Palate is medium, quite dry and drinkable. Thanks for giving me this one Dan.

Bottle via a trade with Soonah, shared with the Dallas Crew. Bottle was a slow gusher. Pours with a large creamy, off-white head and a hazy orange-brown body. Aroma of styrofoam, citrus, bitterness, grass and caramel. Taste is bitter, just astringently bitter with a few hints of dry fruit and more styrofoam. Water like mouthfeel, moderately high carbonation.
