3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Titletown. Poured transparent honeyed golden with a sticky white head. The aroma picked up lovely citrus, floral, and light apricot-y hops over pale and honey malt.. soft overall impression.. quite pleasant. The flavor found honey and bready malts supporting fruit and herbal bitterness around.. black pepper and spicy pine kick in on the bone-dry finish.. more citrus as it warmed up. Light-medium bodied and very dry on the palate.. low carbonation.. OK feel, but it needed a little more substance at times.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Served on draught at the Titletown brewpub in downtown Green Bay, Wisconsin. Pours a clear copper amber colored brew with a slowly dissipating off-white head that leaves behind some excellent lacing. Aroma of multi-grain malt, some crystal malt, a touch orange zest and light grapefruit. Taste is medium bodied, mostly more multi-grain malt with a mild light citrus hop flavor in the background. Finish is semi-dry followed by some soft flora aftertaste with low bitterness. Hop presence is more noticeable in aroma than palate.
