3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear amber with a nice sudsy white head. Aromas of malts, spices, and bread. Flavors pretty much the same with some fruit coming through and the spices are pretty dominant. A lot of earthy hops also and pretty prickly on the tongue. Overall not bad but my chub can point me elsewhere for a better offering next time.

Decent red with a bubbly finish. Was this brewed in a three hundred foot sequoia? Maybe.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. A rich brownish red colored brew with a thin light khaki head. The nose has some malty caramel along with some peach pancakes. This tastes like cheap brown pancake syrup on some pancakes. Notes of caramel and almonds come through in the long finish. The caramel gets stronger as you drink. I think that this could easily be called an ESB. The body is slick and thick at the same time. Actually, this is a nice drinker with just enough sweetness and hints of roast to keep it interesting, I dig it.
