3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: Dark Amber/Brownish Hue, Passes Mild Light, Off White Head Ring, Some Lacing
S: Grassy, Mildly Floral, Mildly Bready
T: Bready, Mildly Floral
M: Decent Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Mildly Bitter, Semi Watery
Overall, maybe I just missed the boat on this one but a very boring beer, nothing good worth seeking at all..with the mild nose and taste, compounded with a watery finish made a boring beer.

On tap at Old E, pours hazy amber brown with light beige head, not much lacing. Notes of caramel malt, spicy hops, wood, grass, and rye. Palate is a little sticky with a medium body. Bitter and dry. Alright

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pouring at the Saturday sessions of Extreme Beerfest. Pours a mostly clear amber brown with a large yellowed beige head. Malt and huge citrus, punchy earthy hops. Medium bodied, sweet and earthy, chewy malt. Thins out a bit, earthy bitterness. Nice profile, but could use a little more body, however for being about 4% it’s doing well. Gentle bitterness on the finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
draft at Coles, Buffalo. Deeper copper pour. rich caramel maltiness with mild resiny bitterness that lingered on palate. Not overly flavorful, easy drinking, decent amber that packs a bigger bitterness than most of the style. Just not a fan of ambers

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Sam’s, Durham. Cloudy amber pour, somewhat still but with a modest film. Ripe and raw nose, potent dry hops with a semi-sweet herbal quality to it. Mouthfeel is medium, could be a bit livelier perhaps. Fairly flavorful for the ABV, with hints of candy among the dry, leafy notes that tend to dominate. Not bad, would be very sessionable if available in sixers.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the Gingerman. Pour has a brown color with a one finger off white head. Aroma has fresh wet hops, caramel malt, and some sweetness. Mouthfeel is light with low carbonation. Flavor has a malted body but this really showcases the hops. Citrus, mild bitterness, medium sweetness and a wet dank dry hop.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brown amber pour at the Alehouse.
Aroma is dank earthy hop with some zippy citrus and sweet grass. Creamy, refreshing in the mouth. Flavor is bursting with grassy, and for lack of a better word herbaceous, hops and sweet, but not sticky, malt. Super Dank, earthy, and juicy. I like it.
