4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Its wide distribution compared to the real rare beers may cause some people to not be so excited about it. Since itís not super hoppy with a tame label compared to the crazy awesome american microbreweries, some may not go crazy when rating it. I on the other hand, loooooove this beer. It is so smooth, the head is probably one of the best (specially on tap of course) than way too many beerís Iíve had. Once the head goes away, you can twirl your class and it comes back up. Itís just the perfect beer for me when I want to guarantee myself a good beer. In other words, itís a safe bet! We tend to forget that safe is safe because itís GOOD!

copper color, foam is not persistent, low training and duration.
The palate follows the caramel aroma, and alcohol and barely noticeable, and leaving an aftertaste with a very slight bitterness.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
5.2% ABV version.
Pours a clear amber color with small, short lasting white head. Smell is a bit like your average lager.
Medium body with smooth and oily texture. Medium carbonation. Taste is balancing between bitter and sour, with sourness coming through mostly in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is a bit dry. It is somewhat lacking in aroma department, not coming through good enough. Water / beer ratio should be reversed, so to speak. However, there are some hints of caramel, nuts and spices. A bit grassy aftertaste with a long and dry finish.
Overall, a bit mediocre but not bad. Could be better, tho.

Originally rated on 9/8/08. Belhaven delivers a solid brew with this ale, a nice looking brown body, ample head. Smoky malts with hints of nuts, mouthfeel is creamy and smooth. Overall a pretty good beer.
