3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Milder than I would have preferred, but nicely done in the same sense, quite well balanced. Malty, and full of rich fruitiness, perhaps some spearmint, that I am sure has something to do with a hop characteristic that I just cannot put my finger on. Definitely quenches the thirst.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Old Market. This brew ended up being the best of the brews on the taster tray. Pours a darker red with a medium off-white head. Lots of fruity hops in the aroma, fairly aromatic. Taste starts with a light fruitiness to the very lightly sweet malts. This brew finishes with a nicely balanced floral/citrus hop finish. Not overly bitter, but a good dose of hops makes this a good refreshing brew.

Good hop aroma. Nice balance between sweetness and hops. Hop aftertaste. Don't know if this fits the style correctly.

Murky dark red/brown. Big thick malts in the taste, thick and foamy with a flavor of sweet apples and maple. Finish is soapy, with a sweet plum and malt nose.
