3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
BA transfer -
Had at the brewpub. Served in a pint glass.
Appearance – A rusty orange color which formed a nice billowy head. The head slowly faded leaving a it of foam lacing on the cap of the beer throughout the drinking experience.
Smell - Some malty aromas with a little bit of dried fruit perhaps. The smallest aroma of citrus and pine as well.
Taste –A malty and grainy brew. Can pick up a faint hint of hops at the end of the drink, not much; appropriate for the style.
Mouthfeel – A good level of carbonation and a good heartiness in body for a lager. A pretty nice mouthfeel.
Overall – A good beer, not what I would have origanlly expected but a nice surprise.

The flavor was bitter, tart and tangy with fruity and citric hops and some astringency underneath. Long citric hop finish. Medium body and smooth. Pleasant.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Did not care much for this beer. Very plain. Nothing really special going on with the malts, hops, or any spices. Boring. No need to ever have again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewpub. Pours deep brownish amber with thin beige head. the aroma is mild and fruity with melon, an odd crystal malt touch, and some cotton candy. The flavor is herbal hops, light caramel sweetness, and a touch of grainy sourness. Leafy sweetness comes out for the finish. Not really my thing, but it’s definitely smooth drinkin.
