On tap at the brewpub on 7/24/12

My intention was to review only the Big Red IPA but after my wife pointed out that the Raspberry Blonde Ale was made by dumping raspberry syrup into a pint glass and then pouring the regular Blonde Ale into the glass. I decided right there to tick-up the tasting flight by allowing only one line from my steno pad to each beer.

Irresponsibly-deserved Tick #6

A) Very light amber. Not much of a head. No retention or lace.

S) Grass, orange peel, light fruit, biscuits and grain.

T) Grainy and tangy with a modest hop kick. Some aspirin, too.

M) Light body with overly fizzy carbonation.

On tap at the Ram.

(A)- Pours a clear amber color. Some white froth.

(S)- A nice piney caramel profile. Some "green" around the edges in regards to the hop profile.

(T)- Similar to the smell. Primarily piney with a caramel malt backbone. Still, a little "green" in a cut grass type of a way.

(M)- A good carbonation level. Just a bit too grassy for my taste in the hop profile. It does not necessarily make it more bitter, but it isnt helping it either.

(D)- Overall, decent, it just does not seem to have a very fresh hop character to it. Maybe sitting a tad too long in the keg?
