2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at The Ginger Man - Manhattan, NY. Soft, mushy malt nose. Flavors are mess of unfermented sugars, out of place hop bitterness and off-flavors. This is unfortunate and not all that drinkable. There’s was a slightly rancid cheesiness that made it hard for me to finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Pony with Paul and Erica 11.04.2011. Pours a nice amber with not much head. Can’t recall anything special about the aroma, but the palate was hoppy, a little spicy, and flavorful. Solid all-around, but did not jump out in any way.

On tap at RnH. Very interesting brew - sweet and bit spicy, a little like a brown ale. Flavors of raisins, nuts, caramel, and hops. It is different from anything else I can think of - got to like this a lot.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Get Real NY 2011. Amber pour. The aroma is softly hoppy. A little bit of bright stone fruit and some lovely spiciness to the hopping. A bit of bright apricot fruity and some soft sweet malt on the back. Excellent balance with a lovely softness. Good stuff.
