3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Bailey’s Taproom while the ladies shopped across the street at Billygoat Vintage - pretty good deal as far as I was concerned. Light copper with a frothy white head. Mint and ceder were the first two things that rose out of the sampler - then you got more pine and resin hop goodness with a nice moderate carbonation and body, a smooth bitterness and an out of place light/thin finish.

Taste of semi-sweet malt, cedar, vanilla, citrus, grassy hops and light spices. Moderate bitterness with some citrus on the finish.

Very hazy golden yellow. Weak white head. Mechanized cedar aroma. Lots of hoppy citrus aromas as well. Straight apricot flavor. Blander on the palate to go with the apricot. Hoppy, citrusy, flatter fruit peel-like pale ale.

Tastes like cedar, too. Light malt sweetness along with bitter, spicy, wood. A hint of vanilla, pepper, and citrus peel.
