3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Served on-tap at the pub.
A - Pours slightly hazy amber orange with a small half finger tall white head, quickly dissipating down to a very light film, leaving small streaks of lace on the glass.
S - Smells of toffee and caramel sweetness, mildly toasted malt, dash of grassy hops and a bit of light spice.
T - Starts off with the toasty malt quickly being joined by the caramel, toffee, hop bitterness and some light spice. Finish is a little sweet with some dryness, not lingering for very long.
M - Medium-Light body with moderate carbonation. Light, slightly sweet feel from start to finish.
O - A decent bitter. I get most of the intended flavors but it’s nothing special. Nice to try but there are better beers on right now.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask after Please Touch Museum. Poured a thinner body brownish/orange with a frothy off white head. Aroma is nice, grains, buck wheat, hint of chocolate and medium toast. Smooth flat body, its a cask though, medium mouthfeel. Flavor of buckwheat, bready, medium toast and a hint of tea bag (no not that tea bag but actual tea bags).

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Tired Hands, pours amber brown with very creamy and light head. Notes are bread, lots of malt, and some more toast. Too much cereal flavors and the body needed much more carb. You can’t win them all, and even before trying this I knew i wouldn’t like it. More of a hop fiend over here.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
hazy chestnut, lasting puffy cream head. Cedar spiced Christmas nose, buttery cinnamon, light wheat, bit of plastics and vomit. Spicy wood early, light thyme and tomato spices remind of vomit before doughy mid dominates with lightly spicy grains mid before buttery soft grass bitterness finish. Soft carbonation allows subtlety and errors.

Pours an amber/ruby color with a medium off white head...nice lacing. Aroma has nuttiness and dry leaves...a but of toffee. Flavor follows suit...Some earthy bitterness...nice balance and a really nice bitter. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a dry earthy finish that lingers with dry leaves and toastiness.
