2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A dark copper ale with a thin lacing off white head. A doughy malt aroma with a bit of c-hops, and light pîneapple. In mouth, a dissapointing ale, with notes of cardboard, caramel, no spiceyness or yeast...boring for the style. Bottle from BOTW, Sept. 2006.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
hazy amber, whispy beige head, touch of lace, sweet spicy aroma with a touch of carmel and a hint of fusel alcohols and just a touch of farmhouse funk, mild bitter spiced flavor on a nice dry malt base, not a whole lot of complexity but a really nice drinking beer

Rich golden pour. White head. Smell has some apple, lemon zest, bread and a hint of honey. Flavor is a letdown. Very bland. Some lemon, yeast, light bread and very light caramel. Meh.

Orange amber color with a thin and creamy eggshell white head. Thin lacing too. Nice citrus and yeast aroma. Light-bodied with a mildly bitter character. Soft spices and yeast flavoring as well. Sour fruit aftertaste at times. The finish is dry and fruity with a hint of spice. All in all a decent seasonal from Avery.
