3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. A slightly hazy amber colored beer with a dense, light beige to off-white head leaving some lacings. The aroma is caramel-ish and lightly bready and nutty, with a nice piney and citrus peel-ish hoppyness. It’s full-bodied and lightly warming, with a nice carbonation level. The flavor is quite bitter, the hops overpowering the malty sweetness. Pine cones, hazelnut, some bread and caramel too. Lasting bitter finish with a lot of maltyness but it’s far from cloying. Sure a solid one, tasteful too. 140617

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours amber red with three fingers of head. A little metallic, peachy aroma with scents of fresh hops, fall leafs (real or suggestive, I don’t know), pine needles, resin and some fennel. Medium bodied, buttery on the palate with a medium bitterness which slowly builds up. Lightly roasted, slight butterscotch, medium finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home from cotteridge wines. Nice bright amber / red coloured pour with a lasting fairly loose off white head. Aroma is semi-sweet, candied pine hop, light touch of orange, marmelade and toast. Flavour is toast, nuts, pine, twigs. Semi-harsh earthy pine hop bitterness. I don’t get much mapel flavour, some unrefined sugars. Palate is crisp, semi-sweet. Well integrated. Good beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
From bottle. Nice moderate copper pour with some nice white head. Sweetness in the nose with the maple and malt. Taste is not as sweet as I had expected and the maple gets lost after the initial taste. Hoppier than expected, which is not a bad thing. Solid autumn beer, but didn’t quite meet my lofty expectations.
