Tap at Barcade. Amber gold colour. Lightly malty aroma topped by a kiss of grapefruity cascadey hops. Fairly clean with a touch of soft fruitiness. A bit of light cascadey hop flavour. Good balance, pretty solid brew.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Victory. Pours a translucent golden amber with a creamy off white head that left some lacing. Aroma...I really didn’t get a whole lot. Some grains, light caramel and citrus. Flavor was much of the same. REally not much going on. An enjoyable beer...just nothing special.
