3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours a big foamy head atop an amber body. First sips are sweet without being cloying (shouldn't have been eating chocolates beforehand, though). There's a slight impression of pear nectar. A bitter hop taste in the back of the mouth mars an otherwise clean finish (or enhances it, as your preference may be). Midway through, I get a more hearty hoppy smell and taste, ending with a more malty profile as it warms. This does have the signs of being a "frontier" beer with its slightly rough hop profile, but a great session beer.

Don’t expect anything more than maltiness, caramel, slight acidity and medium carbonation. Heavy like an anchor ;)

This was creamy and interesting. The taste was unique and maybe a bit yeasty. I had this at a seafood restaurant, so I didn’t really get the full effect, but it went great with mussels. I really liked the way the beer looked in the glass for some reason, but was not impressed enough with it to order a second one.

Solid beer for every day. Tastes great, but a bit lacking in overall complexity and depth of flavor / balance. Always a good choice, but never wows.
