2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught @ Thirsty Bear Brewing Company, San Francisco. Rated on 13.10.2012.
Pours a copper colour with a small head. Aroma of toasted malts, nuts and cooked vegetables. Flavour of toasted malts, metallic notes, weak grassy hops and again cooked vegetables as on the aroma. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a grassy finish. Seems a bit ruined.

Amber-orange pour with a white head. Citrus peel, banana, and some clove on the nose. A bit of bread, some floral hops, and a light yeast note. There’s a good amount of citrus peel on the palate. Some sweet bread and toasted malt notes, a light banana fruitiness, and a hint of clove and white pepper spiciness.

Deep brown ale with small head. Mild, toasty arma. Flavor deep with caramels and roasted barley. Light hops ending. Main impression was the high quality of the grain.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Amber beer with an off-white head. Slight earthy, citrus aroma. Earthy, spicy, lemony citrus flavor. Medium bodied. Lingering citrus, spice , and earth. Decent complexity and a little bit of something more would have made this a much better beer.
