On tap at the brewery. Malt aroma and flavor are both mild here. Surprised by the restraint. Clear caramel color with a white head. Very muted for the style.

Pours with an off-white head that quickly disperses. Color is a light amber/copper. Aromas of light caramel and toast. Flavors are mild malts and a bit of sweetness that finishes quickly with clean hop acidity. Fairly light-bodied with a crisp mouthfeel and good carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The nose is grainy and sweet with herbal and earthy hop. Caramel, burnt brown sugar and cereal grains are prominently featured, while hints of molasses and white chocolate appear nown and again. Earthy hops linger in the finish. It’s rather creamy in spite of the substantial bitter streak running through it. This is a brew that goes down quite easily. While it’s not boozy at all, it drinks like a big beer.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep coppery red in hue. Toffee and roast malts on the nose. Smooth caramel which masterfully avoids copper notes, a dash of savoury smokiness, woody qualities to it aswell. Quite sweet and silky but with a smooth dryness to it that creates the perfect balance.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep copper color, much like a whiskey; very little head; strong flavors of malt; initial sweetness, giving way to a slight tinge of hops. Nice carbonation. At 4.7 % ABV, a pleasant, sessionable beer, but nothing remarkable.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Amber colored beer with an initial froth of off-white foam that quickly settles into a slick. Aroma is dry roast with peat and some darker malt notes with toffee and perhaps some minimal char. Taste is dry peat and toasted malt up front followed by a clean malt sweetness and light hop bitterness into the finish. Clean mouthfeel. Very nice drinking sub-5% ABV beer.
