3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour on tap at the brewpub, dark orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of grass, biscuit, some toast, hints of caramel in there, touch of earthy tones, pretty decent. Taste is a mix of slight caramel, toffee, slight cardboard, hints of spice, slight toasted malt, hints of earth, finishing slightly dry, bitter.

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.
