3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Originally rated on 7/25/08. A deep amber body with a mid sized white cap, that left good lacing on the glass, decent carbonation. Slight aromas of rasins, spices and oranges. The flavor was o.k., the sweetness was all that really stood out, i was expecting a little more. the alcohol was well hid, and it had a good mouthfeel. Overall it was worth a try but i probably wont buy it again.
