"I was initially impressed by the extensive line up of Custom Brewcrafters Taps on the premise. There were 10 in total. We tried the Maibock, Winter, IPA, and the Porter and ordered chicken fingers finished on the grill. This was an excellent selection, the fingers were not greasy and had a pleasant medium spiciness to them, not overdone. The fingers seemed expensive untill we realized that they came with curly fries. Accompanying the fingers and fries was a large side of real blue cheese, fresh carrots, and celery. I would say that the food at BTR is delicious judging by the percentage of bar patrons that ordered food. The service was excellent for a first time visit.
I was unimpressed by the IPA. I felt that it was not an IPA, nore of a weak pale ale. If one can make a blonde pale ale, this was it. My guest thought that it was palatable, average in flavor. The IPA was clear yellow with a "carbonated" head, no true head or lacing present. It had a slight hop aroma, no floral or citrus notes present. This was the same in taste. The hops were mild with a dry finish and no lingering aftertaste, which I enjoy. The winter was average. Nothing stood out in appearance, smell, and taste. Very little winer spices and thin on the palate. I believed that this was more of an brown ale gone wrong somewhere in Honyoye Falls. The porter stood out from the rest of the beer. It had a faint bitter smell with some coffeee detected. The alcohol in the porter overpowered any taste that was present and reminded me of a bourbon. As the porter warmed, some bitterness and coffee emerged. We decided that BTR taps are made for the average beer drinker that might buy 12 packs of Blue for the house and go to BTR to spice it up a notch. One thing that we noticed was out of 20 plus people sitting at the bar, only four other were drinking pints. The rest were drinking Blue, Bud, and Rolling Rock. Buffalo needs to expand its limited beer vision and leave the comfort of the macro beer. There are more true beer bars with better taps in Oswego, a city of 32,000. Syracuse and Rochester have Buffalo beat hands down in quality and quantity of offerings. BTR was a reflection of Buffalo's average beer drinking community."
