3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at the Vista Tavern, Harper’s Ferry, WV. Dark Amber pour with just a little head. Not much aroma but the flavor was decent. Nutty and malty. I liked this more than I thought I would based on its ratings.

Pours hazy amber with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel and floral. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with an average malty and caramel finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is flat to soft.

Can. An unclear, dark amber colored beer with a minimal sized off-white head. Rather bready, caramel aroma, with some fruityness. Citrus hints. It’s medium bodied, quite dry on the palate, yet with sweetness in the flavor. Nice, soft carbonation level. Caramel, bread, nuts and some generic fruityness and a faint touch of orange in the flavor. Some bitterness too, lasting for a while. Not much to write home about this one. 150618

Dried leaves, orange peel, pencil shavings aroma. Clear amber, thick firm tan head. Husk and grain, light kibble, leather. Medium body, easy carbonation, even a little creamy. Sessionable, clean, enjoyable.

Nice beer. Very smooth and quality beer. Not overly bitter or malty. Amber look to it impressive.

Eh, not a fan of the abrupt dry finish. Pours & feels ok. Aroma is fairly light & not all that enticing. Ok.

A very nice amber. Light red with a thick off white head. Caramel malts but the kicker is the nice hop kick at the end. Tried in Harper’s Ferry with Matt in 2014.

Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a red-orange color with a small foamy beige head that faded and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was tart and bitter vague fruity hops. The flavor was tart and bitter fruity hops with a bit of orange and perfume. Medium length finish. Medium body. Meh.
