3.25/5 rDev -11.2%
Draft serving at Moe's Tavern, served in a NB goblet.
Tawny copper, khaki tan head of creamy foam, great lasting retention. Spotty lacing around the edges, constant skim on the surface for the duration of the glass.
Mellow specialty malt aroma,sort of dry with little if any sweetness. Flavors are similar, dry and husky grain flavors, sort of papery, touch of tobacco. Well carbed and slightly watery. Overall very simple yet drinkable. Would prefer this over Fat Tire but that's about it.

Served in a 5oz taster glass at Tighthead 4/29/12. Thanks to the Dood for making the trek with me!
A: Served a deep tawny red. A thin wafer of off white foam forms on top and leaves a bit of lace behind.
S: Heavy on the toasy caramel malt with a bit of biscuit and light hops.
T: See above. Pretty enjoyable.
M: Full and rounded. Slick and coating.
O: Nice. I could've done without the whole Grateful Dead explanation behind the name, but what are you gonna do? Next time I'm there I'll imagine it's named after a Slayer song or something.

3.5/5 rDev -4.4%
Served in a shaker pint glass at The Firkin.
The last of the three Tighthead brews from their Firkin debutante party (cotillion?). It pours a clear garnet-russet topped by a finger of dusty light tan foam. The nose comprises lightly toasted biscuit, light rye bread, caramel, light pine sap, and a touch of grapefruit zest. The taste brings in more of the same, with the bready caramel and the grapefruit really duking it out on the tongue (without actually clashing, somehow). The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta dry finish. Overall, I found this to be the weakest of the trio here. It's not bad by any stretch of the imagination, but I don't think I'm gonna seek it out again any time soon.
