3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
10 oz at Historianís. Pours a brilliant deep red with no real head. The aroma is very malt forward and clean. Notes of raisins, toffee and bread dominate. The bar menu calls this a pre-prohibition lager and Ratebeer is calling it a brown ale. From what I tasted this is basically a bock. The attenuation is pretty thorough leaving plenty of sweet malty flavor but still finishing crisp and not overly sweet. Bready malts impart toffee and brown sugar. Very little esters come through, it definitely brings a lager to mind. Pretty solid.

Clear amber with a wee foamy white cap. Earthy lagery nose with some amber biscuitiness. Smooth flavor with amber lager cracker tones and a smooth mellow toast note. Nice and quaffable.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
This beer falls flat, literally. While it looks promising with a nice reddish/brown hue, there is no head. Flavors are light, barely noticeable, and while there arenít any off flavors, thereís not much going on. Beer falls off on the carbonation. Flat and boring
