3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap: Poured a light clear brown color ale with a small light brown foamy head with light retention. Aroma of light caramelized malt with really nice floral hoppy notes that are subtle but still noticeable. Taste is also a solid mix between some light caramelized malt with dry aftertaste with nice subtle floral hoppy notes with a dry finish. Body is light with medium carbonation. Super great example of the style.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
8 ounce sample on tap at the brewpub. The aroma is lightly sweet with light toastiness. Scant anise is also present. Some chocolate is also in the nose, too. Transparent cola color with a small, quickly dissipating off-white head. Starts with a mild toasted and sweet malt flavoring. Becomes a little astringent in the middle. Fleeting light sweet finish. Lacking, even for a mild ale...
