Dark amber copper. Thick foam. Caramelized. Kinda reminds of a fat tire...which is a good thing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the brewery, pours a clear reddish brown with a lasting off white head and lacing, the aroma is of really sweet malt with a hint of bittering hops as well, the flavor is sweet but kind of lacks in the finish, some banana and fruit comes through too, nothing crazy but not bad.

Draft at Urban Chestnut. Pours a deep reddish with some haze and a tan head. Nose is rich and malty, sweet nose with herbal and spicy hops. On tasting, taste is moderately bitter with a tangy malt note. Low molasses as well. Bitterness is a bit sharp/harsh. Clean overall but lacks complexity.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at the brewery. A coppery and hazy beer. Oh so very soft hops are delicate and pleasant. Some light fruit is also pleasant. Plenty of grain with bread and some caramel. A tasty beer and a style that is always interesting.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours amber / brown with a light tan head. The aroma has toasty malt, light nuttiness, cream and a lager smoothness. It has a medium body that is a bit slick and then grainy with restrained carbonation. The flavor starts with muddied malt, hazelnut and light sourness. The finish has mild spicy hops, pepper and some nectar fruits. This was beer was okay to me.
