3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
on tap and it poured a mild to medium brown with thin white head. no real lacing on this one. also am not sure if this is the right beer for what I had. was at mellow mushroom and they called it spruce brown ale at 6.5%. average brown ale medium roasted malt and some chocolate and nuts. but also had a faint hint of mint (spruce)...weird combo but whatever works.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear brown with a tan head cover, strings of lace. Inviting aroma of ginger and malt. Taste is malt that adds spices and a touch of chocolate in the palate, then moving on to a light bittering in the finish. Heavy toward the sweet side, nearly syrup in texture, but agreeable enough to drink.

Growler to snifter (shared by Tmoney99). Looks solid; a semi-transparent brown with thin off-white lacing. Smells malty with notes of caramel and toffee. Tastes like it smells, only more subdued. Average on the palate. Decent beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Taster at the brewpub. Wow. Tastes and smells like a schnickerdoodle. Pretty original. Medium body. Lighter, crisp carbonation. More dry texture. Dark hazy brown / amber color. Minimal white head, few dots of lace. Some light spruce, toasted malts. Mild bitter taste. Interesting, impressive stuff.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft sample. Poured clear brown color with an average frothy white head that was lasting and produced good lacing. Moderate toasted resin spruce aroma. Medium body with a smooth slick texture with soft carbonation. Moderate spruce toasted bittersweet flavor with with a moderate bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a change of pace beer.
