look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours a nice substantial brown, not overly thin like so many in style, carbonation on point, 1/2" tan head. Aroma had a mild hop and brown malt current.

Taste imparted some roast, some hops, decent stuff for style. This is a introductory transitionary beer for those getting away from BMC AAL's for sure, does nothing bad.

08/28/13 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. As advertised the cherry & currant tastes are there but in a most complimentary way. Great lacing...always a good sign. I like this very much. Methinks it would befit all seasons.
