3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 ounce bottle - $6.48 at Sherlock’s in Marietta, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed, amber-orange body with a finger and finger only of white foam.
Smell: Sweet accented bready, softly toasted malts with a slender waft of fruit and nuts. Very meager hop note, but I’m getting to this a bit later than I probably should. I was unfair and I apologize for my poor behavior.
Taste: Bready maltiness, lightly toasty, blended with a restrained toffee-like sweetness, a swell of fruitiness, toasted cashew, and subtle spiciness from the lightly bitter Perle hops. The sweet maltiness and almost berryish fruitiness persists after the bitter subsides on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Just on the underside of medium carbonation.
Overall: Not perfect, but smooth, drinkable, served alongside some grilled cheddarwurst from local Heywood’s Provision.

11/8/13. On tap at Sweet Grass. Lightly hazed amber brown pour with a creamy khaki head that cuts in half but laces a ton. Malty aroma, a touch of char and roast, tannic in a way, lots of caramel, some chocolate. Nice malty flavor, creamy, light chocolate, caramel, a bit of a husk aspect. Tasty enough.
