2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at the brewery’s tasting room. Stoic amber color, little carbonation or head. Drinks clean and tight, a simple malt concoction with an interesting little twist in the finish that hints at a slight roasted or herbal addition. I’m sure this will be popular. (#4818, 11/10/2012)

Yorktown, Va - Water Street Grill - on tap. Pours a sparkling medium copper with a tight off-white head. Aroma has a touch of wort, some sweet molasses. Flavor has a hint of caramel, some nectarine sweetness, a bit of syrupy maple sweetness. Mouthfeel has a nice smoothness to it. Very decent representation of a kind of murky, ill-defined style.
