3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear warm medium amber with a persistent ivory head and swirls of lace. Taste is caramel malt with a butter rum overtone. The taste moves smoothly through the palate until it is lightly countered by hops and carbonation. A nice unpretentious ale, easy drinking, good session choice. Recommended.

Poured as a 4 oz taster in Greensboro pub. Surprising dark coffee notes, malt, beautiful color, sweetness counters the coffee enough that the wife, who doesn’t like coffee, likes. Went very well with the burger for lunch.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2013 Pours a light amber with a small white head. Aromas of malt and some grassy hop notes. Light biscuit flavors coming through but really not a lot going on here. Crisp light finish. It isn’t foul but it’s a bit bland.
