3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy dark copper with a beige head. Aroma seems citrus/pine. Med body. Flavor is somewhat roasty malt with pine and citrus. Perhaps the reverse. Finishes a bit malty, and not very bitter. Not finding oak, but there’s a bit of complexity that’s hard to pull apart. Bitter enough to be tasty.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2011 On tap @ Raley Field brewfest. Malty, slightly bitter, color is awesome red, with great lacing. Palate is full and finishes dry. Aroma is malty. Overall not as smooth a dbI like my reds, but a decent brew.
