3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: Draft at the Brewpub - Princeton, 4/21/13
Aroma: The nose is on the lighter side with some spice, malt/grain notes, and a bit of fruit
Appearance: This one pours a clear orange color with a small head and drippy lace
Flavor: The taste is pretty much what you’d expect from the nose, mid-sweet and light bitter
Palate: The body of this one medium, leaning a touch light, and it has a decent mouthfeel
Overall, I thought this beer was okay, but nothing special. It is drinkable enough, but it certainly isn’t a memorable offering.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Handpump at the Princeton location. Aroma is quite fruity with lots of cherry and berry character. A light earthy grainy malt base and a fairly low spicy hoppiness. It could use a slightly higher hopping rate or a bit of dry hops as well. Decent ESB.
