draft, and not sure why I haven’t rated this one, surely have drank enough of it over the years. nice malt nose with a mild bitterness of hops. the flavor is a medium semi sweet malt base with that nice little tang of the hops...this one finished kind of dry on the end but that’s ok. good over all mouth feel. nicely balanced. seems to get better each years. edgallow (4476) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 16, 2014

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2014 Tap @ Bluegrass: Hazy orange & dark amber color, lazy beige collar sitting on top. Bready cracker aroma with an abundance of caramel malt that has a slight metallic note running through it. Toasty flavor, lots of stale caramel, bready yeast, & a good bit of DMS towards the finish. Slight earthiness, but hops are quiet. Malt doesn’t have much robustness, feels kind of thin all around. A little bit of dirty-ish, lingering bitterness in the finish. Just okay.

Not bad. Really weak aroma but a good malty taste. Still liked the bourbob barrell octoberfest which I had last night at nulu fest but can’t find on app.
