3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Drakes. It pours a nice clear amber color with a white head. The aroma is malty/grainy with some hints of noble hops. The flavor has more multi-grain maltiness with just a touch of hops. The body is rather full for the style and a bit oily, which is kinda weird. Otherwise, the flavors are spot on. Very nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at Drake’s during First Fridays.Clear dark amber color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily to a wispy film. Short strings of lacing. Roasted malt, yeast and hops in the nose. Light-bodied with flavors of earthy malt, caramel and slight fruit. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.
