3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Enjoyed on tap at Brouwerij Lane and another introduction to a new local brewery. Pacific Northwest hopped. A light reddish body, with a little head and lace. Big carbonation. Getting yeast and hops, also a little funky. Drinkable, not what I would expect from the style, still for me drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draught at Fette Sau. Clear amber color with a thin off-white head that dissipates quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of grainy malt and hops. Medium body with flavors of bready malt, piney hops and slight fruit. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Growler. Pours deep amber with an off white head. Light sweet malts, a hint of toast, medium bitterness, and flowery and citric notes. Good, not great.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2013 Draft at UES Pony with puzzl. Pours a deep amber brown with white lacing. Aroma is straight weed and dank herbal hop. Lots of nelson. Still, such a strange beer - sticky hops and sweet caramel malts.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: Draft at The Growler, 4/10/13
Aroma: The nose has some citrus, herbal, and pine hops, caramel malts, and some toast as well
Appearance: This one has a dark red pour with a beige head, and fairly thick, heavy lace
Flavor: The taste is similar to the nose component-wise, it leans bitter without too much sweetness
Palate: The body of this one is medium and it has a decent mouthfeel, the finish is on the dry side
I thought this was a perfectly acceptable hoppy red beer. It isn’t a standout for the style, but it is pretty clear between this and the Half Stack (vs. the Lagrrr) that Singlecut, so far at least, does ales better than lagers.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Anchored Inn, Brooklyn tap ($7): Pours mahogany color (hehe) with an off-white head. Aroma is earthy hops and caramel malts. This seemed like a hoppy, earthy brown ale to me at first. It was drinkable. Somewhat interesting aftertaste, but ultimately, this was not a memorable beer .

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A disappointing debut from this new local brewer with a great brand. It’s one of those sweet, overly bitter IPAs with no complexity, no hop aroma, no personality. Just bitter sugar water. Tons of chocolate, caramel. Blech.

Decided to get a second flight at Rattle grab a couple more NY rates. Pours clear brown with light head. Nose of malt and toast. Tastes of florals, white pepper, malt, plastic and burnt cheese (kinda like what hits the pan when making grilled cheese). Touch too thin and odd aftertaste.
