3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reviewed from notes. She pours a dark brown and leaves the same colored body with a soft lumpy creamy looking half finger head. The head lasted about a good three minutes. The lacing was mild in that there wasn’t any rings or any foamy leftovers. The smell has mainly the hops in front through a nice without better words "arrogant" bitter sort of way. Some malts appear in the background as she warms. The taste has a mild bitterness backed up by some citrus and hops. On the palate, she’s about a medium sort of body and comes across somewhat surprisingly smooth. Still, there’s a decent sort of sessionable aspect to it. Overall, this is a decent beer, nothing to scream about. I guess I just thought it would’ve been better but hey I’d still have it again.

650ml bottle. Clear dark amber with plenty of head and lace. Aroma is bright, fruity raspberry jam, caramel and faint smokiness. Resinous, bitter, hoppy taste underpinned by a sticky caramel malt body. It delivers on what it promises, but didn’t really have enough going on to hold my interest.

Bottle. Pours a dark amber color with an eggshell head. Malty and toasty, rich and full bodied.

Pour amber, very pretty and appetizing. Thin head that lasts. Smells floral to me and keeps getting better as it warms.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours Ceylon tea color with a big, lacy head. More malt than hops in the aroma, specifically caramel malts. Sweet caramel malts on the middle palate, ending with roasted malts on the finish. Hides its ABV well. Overall, a nice ASA for ASA lovers.

Bottle to glass. Mmmm--this is good. A clear, coppery brown color. Light aroma. A very satisfying, full taste with a little bit of a creamy feel and a medium carbonation. A mild sweetness, followed by a medium bitterness that lingers a bit on the tongue.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Roasty toasty hoppy. Palatable but challenging, despite the years between this and anything else out there. Smells and tastes fresh and alive and what a beer should be. Chalky roasted malts with back front and futuristic hop layering. Not fantastic, not archetypal, but unique and unforgiving and seemingly indifferent of the world, of scenes and fads.

Crap. Not the beer, my attitude. Wtf. This is a great beer. Caramel, resin, syrupy, just the right touch !!! I love it! I poured it and I saw hops!! What else can I ask for? Great color but who cares? The darker gold is its signature that's easy...make me drunk it does. Thick, goey, small head and big butt. Wholly mother of god it's good.

Tap. Amber/brown with medium beige head and nice lacing. Aroma of malt and caramel. Medium body with some alcohol warmth, a very big malt presence, and a bitter hop finish. Very Nice.
