Draft at SFR. Pours deep coppery ruby with nose of caramel malt, hops, vinous fruit. Tastes hoppy, rich, with a good malty and somewhat vinous fruity flavor. A bit body-light, but drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled a pint of this at their P-ville location. Unfortunately, I wasn’t all that impressed with it. The beer poured a deep amber color with a fairly generous off-white head. The head left a good amount of lacing on the glass. The nose featured some malty and bready notes, along with a hint of dry and spicy hops. The body was medium and drinkable. The flavors were much like the aroma, with a bready and malty tone with some hint of dry and spicy hops. Unfortunately there just wasn’t enough there to completely enjoy this offering.
