3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours dark gold with a foamy/frothy white head. Light hop aroma over some mild roast malt. Med body. Flavor is a mix of fruit and herb/grass hop - and the noble hop types quickly assume the ascendant. There’s some mild caramel backbone. Finishes lightly bitter. Probably a decent session ale.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz. bottle pours a clear pale golden color with a medium white head that leaves good lacing. Smell of biscuit, dough, light hops and caramel. Tastes of all the same things in the smell. Mouthfeel is light but chewy with pretty good carbonation. This is a easy drinking beer with good flavor. I’ll be drinking this on Sunday’s during the football season for sure.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours amber with thin bubbly white head. Aroma is very faint malt with a touch of hops. Nice amount of carbonation that continues to bubble long after pour. Slightly sweet malty flavor. Delivers on the goal of being a decent session beer for watching sports. Were I looking to "crush" a few (did I say that right?) while watching a game, I might consider this.

Pours light gold into a shaker. White head with medium retention recedes leaving scant sheets to coat surface. Sour caramel aromas. Soft with sourdough and hay upfront turning to marshmallow in the lasting doughy finish.
