2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is punch-you-in-the-mouth diacetyl, sweet with light vinegar. Clear, light cherrywood color, thin head. Bad tap. Buttery, sweetish, tannic, a little perfumy. Taste was much better than the aroma. Medium, silky body, stiff bittering in the finish. On tap, Proof, with PorterPounder.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2014 Draft at beer tasting room. Plain. Makes me think of a yuengling but with a more bitter first sip yet sweeter with each taste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated on 02-22-2013 at Pinglehead Brewery for RBWG. This draft beer’s appearance is a small beige head with a long retention, fast rising carbonation and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is pine hops, malt and semi-sweet. The flavor is pine hops, lightly bitter, caramel malt, and a little sweet. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is quaffable and not too hoppy tasting. This is a beer that I would drink again.

Actually more balanced than I was thinking it was going to be. A bit of burn but good balance.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tallahassee, Fl - on tap at Proof. Medium copper colored pour, medium thick off-white head. Diactyl-like butterscotch in the aroma with hints of vanilla. .Favor has some more of that butterscotch with some hints of caramel and vanilla. Tastes better than it smelled and improves as it warms. Thick enough mouthfeel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft... RBWG 2013... Clear amber pour with a mid-sized, creamy, white head that hangs on throughout. The aroma offers loads of honey, flanked by traces of caramel. Medium to full-bodied with laid-back carbonation. The flavor is bittersweet – caramel and honey malts are steadied by floral and citrusy hops. Finishes bittersweet - more bitter than sweet.
