3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap @ Second Street Santa Fe Railyard. Pours a bit hazy, dark orange appearance with a light brown head. A touch smoky/roasty, thick caramel, grassy aroma. Carbonation is a touch low. Thick caramel, slightly syrupy malty, slightly flavor, mild dark fruity flavor. Ok, I guess. Maybe the best I’ve had here but it’s flawed.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly hazy. Amber, it’s flat looking and a bit dull. Has a heavy caramel character. A simple beer, I guess somewhere between a sticke and a bock.
