On tap at the brewpub. Not much on the aroma, but I quite liked this beer. Nice reddish appearance. Taste was very balanced and smooth, with some nice malty faint spiciness. Good one.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft sample at their brewpub, clear orangy-amber color with white head. Aroma of toasted malt, light caramel and a funky yeasty fruitiness. Taste adds faint nuttiness and unpleasant herbal off-yeast note. Light body, moderate carbonation, soft with dry finish. Something went wrong with this batch, glad I only had a sample.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nitro... Pours clear and dirty-orange with a mid-sized, white head. Fantastic retention. The bouquet is of toasted grains and light caramel accompanied by a hint of red apple. Medium to full-bodied with feather-soft carbonation. The flavor is subtle - mildly sweet caramel malt. Finishes malty and rich.

Copper color. Weak fruity aroma. Sort of watery palate. Pretty pleasant initial taste... lightly hoppy. Long term sort of bitter tinged w canned good taste and a tad sour. Sufficiently drinkable. Cask version.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A reddish pour with an off white head. Aroma is malty and the flavor is sweet. A good hops and malts balance with a little more emphasis on the malts but not overlooking the needed bitterness to match.
