3.58/5  rDev +9.1%

brewed using the second mash runnings of the moon dog barleywine. deep copper in color with great clarity. smells lightly malty. taste is light. like a subdued pale ale with a slight sweetness. brewed with german northern brewer and saaz hops it has a small but pleasant bitterness. medium bodied and clean in the mouth. very drinkable and refreshing on this hot vegas aternoon. thumbs up.

3.63/5  rDev +10.7%

Appearance: copper in color. One inch head leaves some spotty lace on the glass.

Smell: caramel and ripe fruit sweetness is mellow and hard to detect.

Taste: mild malt and slightly bready backbone. Caramel, figs, and plums sweetness are the strongest flavors. Some soft bitterness and dryness rounds this out.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Crisp early on. Smooth and dry at the finish. Pretty clean finish despite the fruit sweetness.

Drinkability: this come across as a relaxing beer to drink. Easy to consume, but a bit dull after a while.

Got this on tap at the brewpub. Thin, clear amberish color. Mild malty/hop balance smell. Taste is very watery as expected with a mild malt flavor, but didn't remind me of a "bitter" at all. Not terrible, but too mild in flavor and tasted like a 2nd running of the grains.

A- two finger thin white head sits upon a clear, dark copper brew. retent is good, and leaves milky lace on glass

S- malty, some dried dark fruit

T- malty, no outstanding hop characteristics just enough to balance any overpowering maltiness. dry tobacco like flavor, as well as fruit flavors like dates and figs

M- smooth medium body, just a tad sticky, low carbonation

D- a sessionable and malty brew with some nice character. not a beer i'd go out of my way for but, enjoyable none the less.
