2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft @ Slainte. Poured a deep copper color with a finger of eggshell foam. The nose is a touch of cardboard and sweet caramel malt. The palate is buttery and sticky... lots of oxidized dactyl qualities... popcorn, caramel, and a little burnt onion rings on the finish. Blah

Bottle. Pours dark auburn with a small, brownish head. Very fruity aroma in the beginning: Pear, peach, apple. Turns caramel, toffee, even lightly buttery later on with light pine and resin. Taste is caramel and pine, light wooden. Very dry. Palate is stingy and carbonated. An alright quaffer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
35,5 cl bottle (4,7%) @ home, BBE 05/2013
Aroma is quite light with caramel, toffee and bready malt. Flavour has bready malt, some resiny hops, toffee and caramel. Some nutty and berry notes at the end of the glass. Maltier than I expected. Could pair fine with food, without it this is quite boring.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It poured a clear, amber color. The head was an off-white color. It had some decent lacing. The smells of sweet malt, pale hops, slight citrus hops, and a hint of roasted malt. The palate was crisp with an average carbonation level. It had the tastes of hops, sweet malt, hint of citrus, hint of pale malt, and hint of grain. Overall, a better than average beer, and I would buy this again and look for it on tap somewhere.
