2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Black Squirrel for CBC. Pours a low haze red to amber. Weaker foam. Nose is gummy candies, sweet maple, but something like vinegar. Odd. Taste is cherry juice box, very bland overall, mild sugar. Not much to it. Suddy, weaker body. No hop content.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tastes like a competently brewed homebrew kit, nothing more and nothing less. Light sweet cereal grains, a bit like honey nut cheerios, but nothing to recommend it over anything else. A pretty bland creation overall.
