3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Poured a hazy dark amber color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate earthy hop and fruit aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet fruit flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where just met.

Sampled from the tap at the 15th annual MBGSF. Pours a cloudy amber red with a light brown head that lasts throughout the beer and laces slightly. Aroma has a good amount of sweet fruit with earthy grains and a bit of pine hoppiness. Flavor is similar with some sweet fruit up front that are over taken by pine hops and an underlying earthy grain backbone throughout.
