3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 12 ounce bottle; exceptionally fresh. Sweet malt and spicy hop defines the aroma. Poured ruby-red and clear into my dimple mug; lacing persists until the last swallow. Nicely crafted malt/hop balance: toffee in the attack; sweet grass and spice mid-swallow; mildly bitter in the finish with a hint of wood. The hop is floral and fresh and perfectly works in tandem with the malt. This brewer is new to Maryland. I was expecting less (as it is reasonably priced). Pleasantly surprised! Well-crafted.

I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours amber with a white head and lacing. The aroma is caramel and floral hops. The taste is caramel, nut, and slightly bitter hops. The bitter mixes nicely with the caramel sweetness. This is a nicely balanced and sessionable ale.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours copper-amber with a one finger off white head with decent lacing. Aroma is of toasted bready malts, caramel, sweet malts, floral hops, toffee, light pine, and light grassy hops. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. Has a medium body with a slightly watery mouthfeel and a mostly sweet, medium finish. Overall, a pretty nice bitter that is easy drinking.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a bottle. Dark amber with fluffy 1-inch off-white head. I pounded this beer, which had a nose of malty bubblegum and a mild malty flavor with a whiff of hops. There is not much going on with this beer and at 6% it’s not quite a session beer, which is too bad. But it’s a nice quaffable drink when you’re thirsty.
