3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at the DBLDP on 09/02/2012: The beer pours amber-brown with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of malt, honey and a touch of hops. Light to medium body with flavors of caramel malt, molasses and a bit of off fruit. The finish is short with a sweet malt aftertaste. Fairly average overall.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle...thanks to backforty. Pours a nice clear brown color with a small mostly white head. Aroma starts with a nice dose of honey and caramel, followed by a lightly yeasty and bready note. Flavor is loaded with nice honey notes, caramel, very light hops and a small alcohol warmth. Good beer for a style that is usually botched.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Pours clear and deep amber with a large, wispy, white head. It fades slowly to a small, tight, creamy cap that refuses to fully disappear. Heaps of honey and nuttiness in the aroma. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with airy carbonation. The sweet, super-malty flavor offers honey, pale malts and toasted nuts. The hops impart only a semblance of balance. Malty, mashy finish. It doesn’t look much like a brown ale, bug there’s a lot of flavor packed into this little guy. Bottle courtesy of garmonbozia!

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, day 10 Craft Beer Advent Calendar 2013. More golden amber than brown, with a rapidly fading head. Aroma is sweet, not truly honey, some perfumey berries maybe. Sweet, thin caramel with an awkward tartness. Worst of the calendar so far, worse than the Hurricaine Amber.
