3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
a kitchen sink kind of brew. it is a lightly hoppy and pleasantly disjointed hop brew so as to taste herb like with licorice, and even a trace of far off mint. aroma of a clean old beer joint ( i like that). malty frothy zingy carbonation to this deep brown and rooty tasting (with a little dirt still on the roots) beer its a take on an old style that to me seems successful... or maybe it is the old stuff. trace of fruit punch and id like to hear who can discern the fruits! good

Clear ruby red pour. Foamy white head. Very earthy sweet smell. Lots of heavy fruit with clay and chemical cleaner. Taste is somewhat flat and bitter with a tea leaf kinda flavor. Bitter finish, like chewing on a dry tea-leaf directly.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle that I received as part of a Christmas gift from my friend Paul. Pours a mostly clear reddish amber with a moderate off-white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left bits of lace. Mild but pleasant aroma of malt and just a bit of citrus. The flavor is predominantly malt with with some light bitterness at the finish. This is a nice problem-free beer that is very sessionable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shared beer club 12 oz. bottle. Poured a clear, amber/brown with a modest, light tan foam to the head, and spots of the clingy foam as lacing. The aroma was a pleasant, moderate caramel malt scent. The flavor added a bit of roastiness, a touch of sweetness, and light bitterness and finishing dryness. Underwhelming but decently sessionable.
