3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. It was a gusher, but once I got the miles and miles of head down it looked pretty nice. A translucent brown with some lacing. Smells of sweet crystal malt and some noble hops. Pleasant, but not spectacular. Low-ish carbonation. Full, smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is munich malt with some roastiness. A lot more fruity than expected, which earns it demerits. Overall this is a pretty good, easy-drinking beer. But it is not without its flaws.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Twelve ounce bottle from Rivertown variety pack bought at Remke/biggs in Delhi Township. Tan head that slowly left town with little lacing,cloudy dark amber color, good matly aroma, initial fizzy mouthfeel gies way to good, interesting malty flavor. I would suggest serving this somewhat warmer than the 42 degrees recommended in the commercial description.

Bottle. twist-off. pours dark rced to dark amber. head is medium but fades quickly. Nose lends to sweet dark. reads, caramels, nuts, and various rich malt aromas. no hop aroma. Flavor is sweet bready malts but is restrained on the caramel side. no hop flavor. good full malt flavor without any hop flavor or caramel sweetness. Finishes with a good balance between sweetness and dry malts. the carbonation is a little fizzy and really takes away from the expirence. could have been less thin and fizzy with more flavor.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft in a pint glass. pours clear amber with light off white head and limited lacing. Aroma is caramel malts and light hops. Start is sweet and ends lightly bitter. Palate is a little oily and body is medium to light. All around good beer, but nothing special. Glad to have finally had a good beer from this brewer (special thanks to the bartender for insisting).
