3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark amber color with a small head that leaves some lacing on the glass.
Aroma has some toasted caramel & light chocolate maltiness, fairly clean, fairly faint, fine enough.
The flavor has a pretty rich and well rounded maltiness, most defiantly some chocolate & dark caramel malt are there. It’s got a light touch of leafy happiness... some earthy tones. The beer is a touch sweet, but not cloying at all.

At the source, in a sampler shared with the just-21 year old. Pours ruby colored with no head. Aroma has bread and nuts and light stone fruits. Tastes follows, more fruity than the aroma. Medium bodied but light in taste and presentation. Finishes sweetly. Inoffensive, but likely not in the top 10 of their 15 taps. Shrug?
