2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at McCoys. Pours a copper color with white head. Caramel, light hop, slight bitter flavor. Mediocre.
Draft at the brewpub. Malty, fruity aroma, toasty, mildly citric and sweet with notes of red apple skin, earthy hop and faint cellar must. Lightly hazy copper color with a slight, fading head. Flavor is gently bitter to start, turning sweeter and fruity with toasty caramel malts, and finishing with a dose of faintly spicy, citric hop flavor. Some lingering spruce. Semi-dry, moderately carbonated palate, body is medium. Certainly a passable example of the style, has some hop to it. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - APR 2, 2009
