3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Called James Brown Draft at brewery in Mission Beach, CA: Mahogany color, ruby edges, thick retentive head, very thick. The nose is dusty with some roast and oats in the taste. The flavor is lightly hoppy with a smooth creamy mouthfeel like nitro but it’s not. Best of the bunch.

Draft at brewpub. My favorite of the Taylors offerings. Dark brown, clear with mahogany highlight. Pleasing rasty malt aroma, almost porterish. Lots of flavor compared to other brews, roasty malts, good bitterness, hints of charcoal and chocolate. Nice smooth mouthfeel, medium to full body and pleasant carbonation.
