Draft at MIBG Summer festival during RBSG 10. Pours a slightly murky amber with a pinkish white head. Nose is cherry cough drops and some bread, not much else. Taste is simplistic. Artificial cherry and wheat. Meh. cpetrone84 (1810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2010
Had on tap at the Crawfish Boil.
A-pours an amber color with red edges and an off white head.
S-the nose brings pale malts, some tart cherry, and lots of unpleasant metallic aromas.
T-light acetic acid, pale malts, cherries and slighlty tart finish. not a lot happening here and the flavors are rather mild and subdued.
M-smooth, soft medium body with a low amount of carbonation but enough that it doesn’t fall off, creamy finish with a hint of driness.
D-pretty straight forward and that grainy pale malt flavor seems to be slightly off in the beer. I’m not a huge fan. badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUL 24, 2010
