Guest tap at Obed and Issacs. A rather unfortunate thin watery beer with a dull stale flavor, and odd aroma. Serving: Tap

Brown with a creamy white head. Tart minerality, bittering hops, and a touch of rye. Some sweaty, musty notes as well.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2012 Bottle. Pours a glassy ’blood red’ that looks more amber than blood. Aroma is wet leaves, toast, light peat, and a hint of strawberry jelly. Flavor is berry (strawberry), sweetened leaves, and seltzer water quickly followed by burning tobacco. Watery mouthfeel. Meh. Ever wonder what it tastes like to smoke a cigarette? Drink this beer and you’ll know.

Clear brown pour with a thin off white head that quickly faded to a ring. Aroma was plastic, nuts, and toast. Taste was initially plastic then finished with a really nice toasty nutty flavor. Don’t know if it was a bad bottle but I didn’t finish it.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2012 Bottled....The smell is earthy with caramely hits you then grapes almost wineish. Its clear and darkish amber with a 3 inch head that’s off white. The head disappears quick and what’s left is a small cloud. It taste strange. I taste bread, grapes, and then slight bitterness. Not too good but drinkable.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
Decent but, definitely lacking. Caramel notes blended with earthy hops. Reddish brown with a fading head. Bitter in the earthy sense with a sweet side. Medium bodied quick bitter finish. Kind of off for the style.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Beer served to me at a restaurant. Light copper appearance to it didn’t see too much "blood red"... cream colored head goes away quickly to leave a ring of bubbles. The aroma is, well, complex isn’t the word, more like confused. Perhaps some berry sweetness, beady overtones, slight toasted notes. Weird. Slight spiciness on the flavor profile, more bread, cooked vegetables, synthetic sweetness, finishes slightly bitter, not cleanly. In sum ,this beer is quadruple garbage. Muddled and confused, poor hop profile, massive sweetness imbalance, strange brew indeed.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled. Poured light-medium reddish-brown with a well-retained off-white head. The aroma picked up biscuity malts, sweet caramel, and lesser vegetal notes with grassy and grainy hops around. The flavor found more of the vegetal stuff plus some other bad malt, with lesser caramel and toffee in there too.. some funky tartness around, but not much bitterness.. quick finish with nothing good sticking around. Light-bodied with scratchy bitterness on the palate.. moderate-plus carbonation.. this was a bad beer.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a copper-amber with a minimal head. Aroma is light and dry. Flavor is light, dry, breaddy with a backhand of light hops. Not bad, but I probably wouldn’t buy it again.
