This beer looked good, but the taste was disappointing. It was fairly bland with almost no taste of hops. I would not order it again,

1.5
Elwood (3347) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 3, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2014 Serving: Draft at the brewery. It pours a hazy amber color with a light tan head. The nose has some honey sweetness. The flavor leans towards the sweeter side with some honey, earth, and slight roasted malt notes. Light to medium body. Probably the most popular because of the sweetness and less mistakes than the other brews, but it still isn’t all that great.

Update: Still a little on the raw side but a slight improvement in the overall flavor.

Further update: The move to the new location hasn’t done this brew any favors. Strong metallic taste with vegetal aromas. Undrinkable. Even the bartenders agreed that it was off.
