3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On nitro at Vine St. Looks great, creamy head, nitro is sort of cheating though if you ask me. Aroma is boring crackers and malt. Flavor was a let down, just bland malts and boring. No toffee or crumpets as advertised. Overall this was very bland and average, it didn’t taste bad but I wish I’d ordered something else.
Serving type: nitro-tap

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap @ Mountain Sun Boulder. Nitro pour. Pours a yellowish appearance with a creamy white head. Slight diacetyl, a bit buttery, slightly toasty malty, dark fruity aroma. Kind of chewy, dark fruity, mild caramel, light toffee flavor. Not my favorite.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
draft, nitro. clear dark gold with a fine white head. stale, starchy nose of celery seed, drywall / powder, dried peach and apricot and a small touch of uncooked dough. lightly sweet with a medium-light body with a syrupy texture and soft but thin nitrogen carbonation. peaked and invisible flavor profile: extremely pale dried fruit and yeast / dough with nut, stale bread and minerallic accents and sourish pale malt. if there’s English malt here I can’t tell one bit; this beer is washed out and character-less. by the time it warms and opens it smells of dirty dish rag and fatty celery stew, damnit.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear gold with a creamy white head. The nose is a little light but I can make out some earthy cereal tones, and some musty noble hop essence, with a bit of dust. Flavor is mostly the same with some light dustiness, some musty old-world hoppiness, and a fair dose of earthy pale cereal grains. Clean finishing with light lingering grassy bitterness.
