Comments: I could say something about the attractive color of this beer served in a special tear-drop glass but OMFG it tastes like cough syrup!!! Sweet and nasty and I just couldn’t finish it. I’m seriously wondering if there was something wrong with the keg because they can’t really unleash something that tastes this bad on an unsuspecting public.

Comments: This is an attractive copper brown ale with a thick head, but I was a disappointed by the taste. It was weak and flat with a few hints of chocolate. I expect something heartier from a beer of this type. Oddly enough, I’ve tried this beer before from a bottle, and I liked it a lot better.

Comments: Here’s a beer I’ve been avoiding because it comes in can yet is really expensive. I found a place serving it on-tap and gave it a try. The beer has a nice malt/hops balance and leaves good lacing on the glass. I’m not sure if I’ll get it in a can, but it’s nice to know that a decent beer can come in aluminum.
