4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2013 This is a beautifully restrained ale, which reminds me of New Glarus in its drinkability. In other words, I could easily drink a six pack of this in a couple of hours, and I think that’s part of Off Color’s intention; it’s an easily crushable brew. Smells sweet and malty, touch of honey. Clear dark brown with a red tinge, but not approaching black. I love how it tastes, sweet up front but not cloying. Pleasant dry finish. Elegant, you might say. Palate is slightly creamy behind the up-front tingly carbonation. The overall effect is greater than the sum of its parts. I love it. BONUS: This is now in 12oz bottles in six-packs. A $9.99 per six-pack beer made by great local brewers? I was getting worried Chicago’s new craft beers only came in $10 bombers, Half Acre being the exception. So, thank you, thank you, thank you, Off Color.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours cola-like with a very thin head that dissipates completely. It looks like a flat Coke. Aromas are very subtle: honey, cocoa, and German yeast. Vinous flavors, honey, cocoa, cola, and subtle metallic notes. Mouthfeel is peppery and watery, yet it coats the tongue. This is reminiscent of a home-brew attempt at a dopplebock that didn’t quite work out.
