2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is buttery and floral, a bit old. Color is a deep amber with a big fluffy head- points there. Flavor though, leaves a little to be desired. Quite light, not aftertaste, just a quick short shot of malt.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Darkish red brown some head that fades. Aroma of chocolaty nutty roasts. Taste is mostly acidic, same roasty nutty flavors, but not as strong flavored as I’d like to see. Too watery and acidic on the palate. Not too sweet though which is good.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A definite session ale, looks hearty and appetizing, with a nice brown color and persistent, lace-leaving head, but flavor-wise is very mild, maybe too mild, just sort pf something to drink while doing other things. Which is, I guess, the point of a mild session ale. So good.

Tap at Metropolitan. Pours clear brown with a large, creamy off-white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is diacetyl, cookie and toast malt with dates. Flavor is malt dominant with light diacetyl, light hops and bitterness and a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at NHC. Pours a deeper brown with offwhite head. Nose is quite nutty and clean, low esters and toasty with a hint of roast, no hops. On tasting, crisp and clean. Light body, light roast. Again toasty and nutty with a clean finish. Nice mild.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a bottle into Sam Adams bubble glass. I have had it on numerous taps as well but I prefer this one bottled. Very malty beer with a dry caramel like finish. This is my go to beer when I wanna pound a few for a while. Very drinkable and almost no hop taste which is great for a hop hater like myself. One of my faves and easily the best beer in Pennsylvania.

On draft at The Franklin House in Schaefferstown PA. Sweet malt aroma with caramel complexion. Flavors also richly sweet malt with caramel. More balance needed.

Light brown with a smallish head. Light caramel and bready nose, sweet flavor. Decent brew but not horribly exciting.
