16 ounce pint - Taco Mac in Woodstock, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a relatively clear, dark amber-hued body with a slim, light beige head.
Smell: Moderately spicy with a growing pine resin presence. Toasty, crystal malts. Thin hint of fruit. A bit of alcohol.
Taste: Toasted bread, crystal maltiness with an extra sip of thinned treacle. Scantly nutty. Lightly estery. Woodsy, lightly resiny hops with very light citrus slipping in the taste. Medium bitterness, yet it still finishes a bit sweetish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: It's fine, but, I'd politely pass it up on a second occasion.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured deep amber/copper with lightly tanned, very creamy head. Holds the head well.
Nose: Spicy, slightly piney. Not too overpowering on the hop aroma, but that is almost all you get.
Taste: Medium bodied, well-balanced at the front end. However the hops linger on the tongue after the malt sweetness fades away. Lingers for a while, drying out the mouth slightly.
Overall: A good beer experience. The flavor really changes with the temperature. In my opinion, a bit smoother at lower temps. With higher temps, you get more of the hop/alcohol bite, not necessarily a negative thing.
Serving type: bottle
