3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
$6 pint on tap at the brewpub. Lightly spicy, grassy, hopped aroma with some underlying mustiness. A little fruity with a touch of apple acetaldehyde is also appreciated. Mildly hazy dark amber body with a small, off-white head and some kick ass lacing. Prickly, carbonated bubbles hit the tongue to start. Becomes a bit chewy, malty, with some roastiness in the middle. Lightly hopped finish with some dry, earthy, spicy hops. Pretty tasty stuff.

Deep orange/red with pillowy head. Apricot hops aroma, general saccharine malt character. More apricot/peachy hops prevail through the flavor along with soft, biscuity malt, dark caramel. Gentle, mildly carbonated finish, rather thick.
