4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
The best from Olde Hickory/Amos Howards. Pours a majestic clear mahogany with a rich rocky tan head. Aroma and flavor mesh here, showing a large amount of butterscotch, a bit of powdered chocolate and toffee notes. Hops contribute a little earthy side-of-the-tongue bitterness here, but no floral or fruity notes. I wish I could live under the tap handle. Well done!

draught. This is a solid red with a bit of white head. Really sweet aroma on this, scarily caramel-like, some toast. Mouth is loaded with caramel and some bread. There’s no bitterness until the end when some bark and citrus comes out. I don’t have any real gripes. . .

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught. Pours red-gold with off-white head. The aroma is buttered toast and biscuit with a tame hop note and some ambient sweetness. The flavor is quite robust and very sweet, with syrup, toasted malt, berries, caramel, and a fruity hop finish. Very interesting. I think I like it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bright Copper, with a slight tint of orange, and a thick foamy head that goes away quickly. Faint but sweetish aroma of molasses and honey. Full bodied and rich. Surprisingly tangy - notes of orange, honey and molasses and a peppery finish. On draft, Union Jack’s Knoxville.
