Drake (9999) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 23, 2012
2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Served on draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear golden color with a thin white creamy head. Decent head retention. Aroma of grain malts, almost nutty, and some grassy hops. The taste is grassy hops and grainy malts. Off balance... too bitter. Light bodied with average carbonation.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
On draught at the brewpub. Pours a hazy straw brown with few suds to retain a head or leave lacing. The nose is of light grain and corn. The flavors are far too subdued, very little to comment on with the exception of a tiny grain finish. The palate is seltzery with a thin body and overactive carbonation. Unfortunately, this is the "light" beer they brew to match the major brewers, but it remains watery with no substance.
