2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Falling Rock poured a hazy amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of carmel, fruittiness and some strange floral or herbal notes. Palte was medium bodied and smooth with a lightly astringent finish. Flavors of carmel, honey, fruittiness and some odd herbal flavor with a smooth dry bitter finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft pour at the Rogue Public House in Portland, Oregon this came in the glass a rich amber color with a white head and light lacing. Nose of ripe fruit and flowery hops. Smooth creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is again full of ripe fruit and the finish is long and bitter. A really interesting beer and quite good overall.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Q-Brick.
Deep amber color. Lovely, fragrant, flowery hops. Ok malt, dry and earthy—now that I hear it is French, it makes sense. Caramel and a slightly harsh finish. Ok hops, not so bitter, but very earthy. A decent, original beer.

On Cask @ Rattle’N’Hum. Where is the beer here. I feel like I’m drinking a light beer, not a bad light beer, but where is the flavor?

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy amber. Thick head. Fresh, fruity hop aroma (leaf, orchard fruit). Fruity, bitter hop. Leafy with faint berryish notes. The malts are caramelly and crystal with some chewiness. Finishes both sweet and bitter with a woody signature. I also like that I get to remember the Latona, which is one of my favourite neighbourhood beer bars in Seattle.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ Cock & Bull. Clear copper with nice white head and lacing. Very bright and leafy hop. Low carbonation. Has a nice lingering hop finish but is a more subtle beer than expected. Sessionable and lighter than I thought but is assertively hopped, more along the leafy cannabis type than fruity or earthy. Nice beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint from Tyler’s. Slightly hazy golden orange pour with smallish head and decent lacing. Lots of sweet orange peel and crazy floral notes. Reminds me a bit of lemon-scented cleaner. Sweet malts and bitter hops. Amazing for a few sips but becomes a bit cloying quickly. Great long bitter finish, though.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is slightly sweet grapefruit hoppiness. Caramel malts with a subtle nuttiness. Flavor starts very mellow with a small but sweet hoppiness. Gains a hint of spice towards the finish with some piney hop bitterness. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not bad but never really meets its potential. Flavors stay very reserved though it is balanced well.
