2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
SF Int’l Beer Fest - Not a bad bit of beer. Aroma had a roasty quality to it, but not over the top. It also had a slight hop nose to it too. Appearance had a reddish orange/amber hue to it. Mouthfeel was full bodied, not harsh in the least and clean finishing. Flavors were malty, slightly roasted and nicely bittered. Like I said, not bad.

Draft. Reddish color with little head. Malt aroma. Malt and balanced hops with some roastiness and a bit of earthiness. Not much going on to inspire.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Just a tad redder than the 2700, the exact cloudiness as well. Good head retention, malt in the nose, roasty, bitter, light medium effervescence with a touch of citrus. A very good beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hoppier than most in this category, which jumps it above the pales and most reds. Nice nose and a decent bite, clean.
