3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light golden color, slight protein haze and some sediment floating. Tall frothy head upfront that reduces to a small amount toward the end.
Little aroma, some rye and malt comes through.
Light creamy body, rich malty flavor with a slight hop bitterness. Little rye flavor plays through as I feel like a citrusy note over takes it.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can, October 2014 batch. Hazed gold with a thin white head. American aroma hops are catty and smell of orange marmalade and apricot jam and faint pine. Malt is honey-ish, sugary / pastry-like and husky. Yeast is lightly chalky / muddy. Syrupy and flabby with close to zero carbonation. Horribly under-fermented, the rough finishing bitterness and worty malt sugar is like drinking from primary. This is unfinished beer being sold to the public. Nobody designs a beer to be like this, I’m sure previous batches were decent but this batch is a mess.
