2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap, brewpub. Pours a clear straw yellow body with a minimal white head that fell to a thin ring. The hops on the nose is pretty light, a little grassy with some crockery malt. The flavor is a little off, not very crisp or clean, seemingly not well lagered. A lot of off notes on the finish especially. Very minimal bitterness throughout. Not sure that I can be convinced that they are all malt here. Light bodied and fizzy with a short finish.

Draft @ brewpub. Gold. Nose is grassy hops and seems more full-bodied than the later already with deeper malt and higher IBU. Delicious lingering bitterness. Impressive and sessionable.

2.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewpub in Old San Juan.
Pours a dark golden yellow color with pale yellow hues when held to a light and a one finger frothy white head. Good retention, only slowly fading into a lasting ring that laves sporadic spots of lace behind.
Bland aroma with hints of slightly toasted biscuit malt and toffee. Slightly earthy/grassy with subtle earthy pine hop character.
Medium boded and fuller than expected with a nice crisp hop bitterness up front that lingers throughout over a sweet malty backbone into a long dry finish. Slightly earthy with hints of grass and straw along with some subtle light fruit, mostly apple and pear. This is nicely balanced by a toasted biscuit malt presence making this beer decently quaffable. The best of the three beers I had at Old Harbor.
