3.18/5 rDev -11.4%
On-tap at the brewpub, 2/5/10. Served in a Third Street pint glass.
This beer had the misfortune of being consumed not long after I had a pint of Moonlight's superb Death & Taxes.
The appearance was not dissimilar to cola mixed with coffee, then watered down. No head to speak of and poor lacing.
Pale malt and a hint of charcoal in the nose. Smells as watered down as it looks. No off notes per se.
Toasty malt recedes to a faint ill-defined char flavor mid-palate. Hops add some bitterness but no appreciable flavor, and don't integrate well into the profile. Bland and incoherent.
A touch watery and a little too astringent none the less.
Easy to drink, but there isn't much reason to order a second pint. With Death & Taxes readily available less than a block away, I wouldn't order this again...
