3.55/5  rDev n/a
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

On-tap at Bailey's Taproom in Portland, OR.

Pours a weirdly amber hue, without any hint of pink or red that I'd expect in a cherry beer. Filmy, fine white head which leaves solid, sheeting lace. It's not a bad look.

Nose is pithy with cherry huskiness and a bit of neutral grainy malt. There's a touch of sweeter lemon sherbet which comes through as it warms, adding some complexity. The cherry feels a bit tacked on, but it's ok.

Taste is similar in this regard. Cherry comes through above a bland grainy malt base, but this time it actually has a bit of bite associated with it, at least. The feel is the best part: it has a smooth, clean near-creaminess that adds texture to a solid if dull palate.

It's nice enough overall. It's certainly drinkable. I just wish there was a little more point to the cherry. Or maybe it just doesn't mesh that well with the rest of the beer.
