2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at the brewery’s tasting room. Stoic amber color, little carbonation or head. Drinks clean and tight, a simple malt concoction with an interesting little twist in the finish that hints at a slight roasted or herbal addition. I’m sure this will be popular. (#4818, 11/10/2012)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Yorktown, Va - Water Street Grill - on tap. Pours a sparkling medium copper with a tight off-white head. Aroma has a touch of wort, some sweet molasses. Flavor has a hint of caramel, some nectarine sweetness, a bit of syrupy maple sweetness. Mouthfeel has a nice smoothness to it. Very decent representation of a kind of murky, ill-defined style.

Draft at Urban Tavern The ale poured a clear dark amber with an off white head and some lacing. The aroma was faint caramel malts and some yeast.. There is some sweetness in the taste with nuts. The ale has a medium body with soft carbonation. This is a good ale to enjoy while watching American Pharoah win the Derby.
