2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Huge thanks to Alex for this Wyoming tick. 12oz bottle into a small tasting glass...Pours a light copper clear body, not appealing. A big head, lots of carbonation, good retention, spotty lacing...A strong malty aroma, lots of caramel and sugar on the front. Toasted nuts and faint floral hops on the back do not hide the light skunk finish...The taste is overshadowed by the super light and watery feel, as soon as it hits my lips Iím bored and disappointed. The taste itself is nothing special, skunk and oak with a caramel finish. The hops are gone.
Not much of fan of this. After the brewery hype Iíd love to try some of their other offerings, but this is one worth skipping.

Bottle. Pours amber orange with a thin white head. Light sweetness, grainy base, and just a touch of earthy hops. Not bad.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle ordered from the brewery as part of a mixed 12-pack. Served in a pilsner glass.
Pours brings a copper-red brew that is mostly transparent with some visible carbonation. Thin white head without too much retention power. Some spotty lacing on the sides of the glass. The nose brings forward a brew with a bit of oxidation along with some light amber malt and bread crust. The flavor falls along the same lines. There is some doughy malt sweetness and a hint of toffee. Very mild earthy hop presence lingering in the background. Medium body with okay carbonation and a bit of an off finish. Drinks decently enough, though Iím not a huge fan.

Smells like the veterinary office where I used to take my cat..now sheís in a mass grave behind the building Iím sure. Maybe thatís an earthy smell?
Tastes honestly similar, but a little more subdued. malt, I can see the caramel, earth,

This has a strange aroma kind of like vegetable medley and whipped cream, its hard to explain. Well it was a bit carbonated with some sort of off taste. A bit malty with a bitter aftertaste. Nothing really stood out. Decent at best.
