2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at the brewery. Filtered rusty red colored body with a small near-white head. Nutty, chewy caramel malt base with some honey and caramel candy sweetness across the middle, and a bran and dog food note that develops across the back. Astringent and coarse texture, with some harsh burnt peanuts in the finish. Hop presence is nutty and bready up front, but gets consumed in the dog food bran malt flavor in the back. Forgettable.

Draught at the brewpub. Clear orange-red color with off white head that laced the glass. Light fruity aroma (plum and fig) accented by a hint of toasted bread. Fruity flavor with malty caramel and toast notes. Reminded me a bit of a fresh-tasting Bass Ale.
