2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap at the brewery on 7/13/09. Pours a clear light amber and orange, little cream-colored head. Touch of caramel and pine in aroma, but not much. Very off-tasting that didn’t have a great bitter/sweet balance. Not a great example of the style.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, one of several very generous bonus bottles from my trade with Douglas88. Thanks! Warm amber, lots of butter colored fine head. Dry biscuit aroma along with an odd rusty nails quality, musty hay. Very dry toasty malt with a blood metallic edge. A twist of smokey grapefruit pith in the finish. Refreshing, but otherwise kind of odd. Wondering if this might have a bit of infection: oddly phenolic in a way that seems like bacteria may be at work.
