3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap. Clear brown with a light tan head. Aromas of caramel, toasted malt and light coffee. Flavor is sweet malt, caramel, and light coffee. Light bodied lingering caramel.
Pint draft at the brewery tasting room in Denver, Colorado. The pour is a hazed darker copper brown with a 1/2 inch white head. The aroma is faint, what is present is caramel with light roast and a bit of mineral. The taste is the nose, nice balance of softly sweet caramel, touch of roast, and clean dry finish of mineral. The palate is light bodied, soft carbonation and the clean finish. Nice enough. NachlamSie (3485) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Pint at the brewery. Pours a deep red/brown. Aroma is light, malty with hints at tree bark, mildly fruity notes, cacao and tobacco. Palate is light, as to be expected. The flavor is malty with tame roast, earthy notes, a subtle woody spiciness and a hint of baking chocolate. I expect the style to be quite light, but this one is on the edge. Pretty tasty still and clean and balanced like most CK beers. arminjewell (9670) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 5, 2013
