3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Russo’s. Pours a medium amber/orange color with a medium off white head. Smells of sweet malt, butterscotch and some caramel. Flavor was medium bodied with moderate carbonation, reminded me of an Octoberfest style beer. Toasty malt and grain. I’m not as familiar with this style but I did enjoy this with dinner.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Winking Lizard. Poured a golden-brown, with a slight aroma. Honestly, I drank this first out of a long night, so I don’t remember explicit details from the taste. I remember it being completely non-bitter. It leaned towards something not quite malty... sort of a pleasant, toasty taste. I hope that more people try this!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at the Winking Lizard, too. Pours a clean clear caramel golden with a thin, but lasting head. Aroma is sweet toasted malt and butter. Tasty and smooth, but more like an Oktoberfest. Notes of caramel, butter and sweet malt nectar. Pretty good effort.
