Sampled on tap at RCB downtown plaza. Brown-orange pour without much head. furity aroma, sweet sticky flavor, finishines sticky with some slight bittering. It was also served too cold for a cold sacramento evening, althought the alchol did eventually warm me up

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Brown beer. Aroma is sweet and malty. Pretty fruity. Sweet dark malts are hit by a weird sour apple kind of thing that I am sure is not supposed to be there. Kind of ruined it for me as I couldn’t get past this aspect of the brew.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
16 ounce sample from the brewpub. Aroma is a bit fruity, estery, with some berries and light metallic hops present. Transparent orange-amber body with a small, faint, off-white head and virtually no lacing. Starts a bit fruity with some light berry flavors. Becomes caramelly and sticky with some maltiness. A little roastiness with some mild buttery diacetyl notes to finish with some light bitterness. Fair.
