22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours brown with a spicy head. Aroma of light spices, some soda, hints of weird fruits and off-notes, and some light caramel and chocolate malts. Flavor the same with a weird blend. Average texture. Not the best beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: Draft at the brewery, 1/17/15
Aroma: Sweeter aroma, some yeast, roast, and a little chocolate
Appearance: It pours a brown color, with some light lace and almost no head
Flavor: The flavor is along the same lines, leans sweeter, some spice as well
Palate: The mouthfeel is pretty clean, light-medium bodied
I thought this was a pretty solid one. Other than the Berliner, probably my favorite out of their standard line-up.
