3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught @ Altoona: This one pours a clear amber color. There was a very small off white head that didnít linger long or leave much lacing. The aroma was lighter. Caramel malts with some earthy hops. The taste is OK. Caramel, some toffee and a hint of dryness in the finish. Not bad, but a typical mainstream amber.

Draft. Pours clear, light copper with a trace of off-white head; short retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is caramel and cookie malts, light toffee and light earthy notes. Flavor is heavy caramel malt, light fruit esters, and no hops; seemed somewhat flat. Medium body, low carbonation, and low warmth.

Bleh! Not much aroma. Pours amber from tap with a half an inch of white foam. Not a lot of taste. Finishes clean.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep amber pour. Soft chewy sweet malt aroma. A touch of minerally character. Light caramel and toffee flavour. Clean and chewy with a bit of minerally astringency on the back. Kind of misses for me.

On tap at Marzoniís on our way to RBSG. Pours a clear copper amber with a thin to medium sized beige and white head. Fruity, clean malt, toast, crisp sweetness. Nice caramel and malt. Toasty and nutty. Toasty, and a little bit of apple sweetness. Even more toast on the finish, malty, dry and light with a slight bitter finish.
