3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This poured a semi murky light brown color with a beige head. Aroma was light toast, some mild sour fruit character, yeast, and light nuts. Flavor was a bit off and astringent, not true to the style, but a slight funk to it that I enjoyed. Ok.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle) Pours hazy brown with a light creamy head. Flowery malty aroma and bready, roasty malty flavours with a nice freshness from the hop. The many flavours do clash to an extend, but its still a very tasty brew

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 355 ml from Bier-Bienne (CH). Dark red brown with a short beige head. Enticing nose of roasted malt, toffy-molasses, hop citrus-lemon. The mouth delights roasted malt, toffee, spices, molasses-barley sugar. The Citra signs its work, tropical, lemon and citrus. Neverless, i was still difficult to finish the bottle, warming the taste and its bitter comes to obsessive and sikkening.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown body, big yellow-brownish head, mildly fizzy. Aroma of malts, some bread, roasted malt, a bit of coffee and cookies. Really complex maltyness with both roasted and fresh notes. Taste is more bitter, leaves a hoppy trace on the back of the tongue, bit alcoholic. Bitter finish. Good brew.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Well balanced nose with fruitcake sweetness from the malt (with added malt loaf) and a subtle underpinning of hop tang. Pours a deep brown with a firm faun head and an inner ruby fire. Flavour is some salted caramel malt with a rum n raisin icecream finish. Well balanced and pleasant but a touch thin and a touch bland.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A thin tan head on a hazy, brown colored body.
The aroma is unique: roasted malt with a sharp pine injection. I like it.
The taste is similar with a roasted/nutty malt background and a strong pine and lemon bitterness throughout.
A crisp texture, moderate carbonation and medium body.
It’s like a marriage of a brown ale and an IPA. Enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Excellent dark brown pour with a nice tan head and some lacing. Aroma of Cita hops and a little spice. I’ve heard of this new hop variety but have never tasted it. Medium body with a lightly roasted malt and spice taste. Clean somewhat dry finish. An excellent brown ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl bottle, Sheffield, UK via The Dram Shop. Medium brown, lighter appearance than cola. Balanced aroma, sweet caramel with floral hops. Medium body, sharp spice then a long building sweetness on the finish. Quite nice, very American in style compared to what I’ve been drinking recently.
