3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
My first scratch beer...I don’t sense anything special here. A real nice pour though...nice medium gold melding into amber coloring with a two thick finger head which held for a while before dissipating and leaving a nice thin lace on top. Interesting light grassy fresh aroma. I’m not any type of expert on this style, but mouthfeel has a bit of sticking around without being bad tendency. Just a pretty even, empty flavor to me. A mild hop and malt evenness that tends to emptiness for me. This drinks fine, but not sure of a reason to drink it over and over again.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
6-pack from the brewery courtesy of Eileen. One of the better scratch’s I’ve had, and an overlooked style IMO. Flavorful, well balanced and seriously smooth... I would snap up a case of this if I could.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This poured a clear yellow to orange color with a white head. Aroma was toasted malt and grassy hops. Flavor was much the same, a little sweet, lightly toasted and mild german hops. Just not my style.
