look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

This one looks pretty good, although it is quite dark. In fact, it was as dark as the Dunkel that was delivered to me by accicent that was destined for someone else at the table.

The aroma is good, with a ton of citrus and green hops in the nose. This smells almost like a fresh hop beer.

Taste is good with a good bit of hops and a balancing level of caramel and biscuit malts. The level of bitterness is too low, however.

Mouthfeel is good with a firm medium body and a lively carbonation.

Although good, I would have to move on for more hops.

Serving type: on-tap

3.65/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

On tap at the brewery. Pours amber colored with a small white head. Aroma of pine, some grass, caramel malts. Flavor follows the smell closely with light bitter, pine notes, caramel malts, light sweetness. Medium mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Not bad but not particularly impressed either.

Had this again while out at Jerome Bettis' Grille, and it tasted much better. Lots more bite and just seemed fresher than the keg at the brewery, which is strange. Anyway, worth a try and I guess I'd have it again if I were in the mood.

Serving type: on-tap
