3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Served on-tap at the Brewpub.
A - Pours light brown with a nice one finger tall white head leaving spotty lace down the glass.
S - Smells of candy sugar, toffee, caramel, bready malt, and some dulled hops. Not as strong as I was expecting but still decent.
T - Good amount of toasted malt chewiness up front quickly giving way to a mix of candy sugar sweetness, caramel, herbal hops, and some light nuttiness. This one has some good flavors and is fairly well balanced.
M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Smooth, slightly dry feel that combines with the grainy feel to linger on the pallet.
O - Pretty good. I have never been a huge fan of this style but this one has a good flavor profile and it is pretty easy to drink. A good beer to start out with before you move on to some of their other beers.

Heavy malts, on the flat side, no aroma. Rich high quality nutty malts really save this beer.

Probably the only miss at Selins Grove. It pours golden orange with an off white head. The aroma is of toast and berries. The flavor is malty toast, berries with a mildly soapy and nutty finish. Thereís some off notes of cooked vegetables and medicinal bitterness. My least favorite of their beers.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. Reviewed from notes.
Pours a fairly-dark brown with a nice off white head. The nose brings forward some light caramel coloring as well as some lights fruits and some bread dough. The taste is some good caramel taste as well as some light baked goods. Moderate feel with good carbonation. Overall, a fairly solid and sessionable version of the style.

average brew, low in alcohol. Equates to thumbs down for me. With so many good beers out there, donít waste your time on this one.
