On tap at PreFunk. Murky copper pour, small creamy beige head. Overall comes off as very malty, nice bitter hop finish compliments the overall brew. I saw a comment that said barleywine light., very appropriate.

On tap at Bailey’s Taproom. Colour...medium gold with a thick white head. Nose...malty and somewhat fruity with husky and grassy notes as well. Palate...hmmmm...seems higher in abv than that which is stated. In fact, this seems almost like a junior barley wine. However the flavour complexity is rather narrowly focused with creamed corn, malt powder and some boiled sweets.
