2.7
Nickls (2576) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - AUG 17, 2011
Tap. Clearer coppery brown with an eggshell head. Aroma is quite weak on this and only catch some leafy hops, slight toffee, and biscuity malt. Bit nutty in the flavor, some slightly sweet malts, and pretty faint finish. Thinner body with medium carbonation. Nothing offensive, just not interesting even for the style.

2.7
Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAY 8, 2011
Serving: Draft at the brewpub. It pours a nice copper color. The nose is malty with a little bit of fruitiness. The flavor is plastic, some toasted malt, and bittering hops. It’s rather limp and lifeless. No dryness on the back end. Medium bodied with lower than average carbonation leading to a flat finish. Not Bill’s best work.
