3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (16oz). Slightly hazy rich amber pour, nice bubbling and a 2cm foamy beige head. Light, crisp aroma of mild fresh cereal grain, toasty caramel sweetness, and light herbal bitterness. The taste - well, I’m disappointed; elements from the aroma, but mostly just bottle metallic harshness. Light body, somewhat undercarbonated, crisp-finishing, but that metal lingers, I’m afraid, although it seems to fade as it warms and opens, leaving run-of-the-mill bland toasty grain and light herbal/grassy hop bitteness in its wake.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Clean amber hue with very good frothy head and lace. The aroma has notes of caramel, toast, and biscuit malts, grassy hops, light pineapple, and dusty yeast esters. The taste starts mellow and lightly sweet. A hoppy bitterness soon follows with a dash of fruity undertones. A floral character leads to a mild biter and metallic finish. The feel is a bit watery. Quaffable, but leaves something to be desired. Thanks for the bottle, MrFacto.

Had at the brewpub after a tour of the place. Not bad, but reminded me of Sam Adams... not sure how I feel about that.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz bottle served at the miller time pub (milwaukee, wi). Decided to go for this after I didn’t partake in it after the tour. Pours a very nice slightly hazed amber with a big puffy offwhite head that laces. Aromas are nice light carmel malts balanced with decent florals and citrus with a touch of gumball sweetness. Initial is light bodied, a touch toasted cereal, carmel, amd toffee balanced with a light bitterness and subtle inviting citrus. Finishes nicely, light malty sweetness finishes and is pretty good.

Thanks to Cavie for sharing this bottle. Gold with a white head. Aroma is not too great. I get some grain notes as well as some dirt. Flavor is similar with grain and grass notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A bright orange/amber in color with a thin head. Aroma of light citrus hops and perhaps some oranges. I guess it was a tad medicinal. The flavor had a clean hop bitterness and a bit of butter and semi-sweet medium colored malt. The malt flavor was hard to pinpoint for me. Finishes clean. It is a bit basic, but pleasant.
