3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft pint at the Berghoff Bar. New version reformulated by Randy Mosher and now brewed at Stevens Point. Now at 6.2% abv. I picked up a bit of spicy rye in the nose right away. Deep reddish brown color under a thin head. The palate holds on to that rye spice, and the malts stay to the light side. Advertised PN hops seem more like their peppery European cousins. Then again, I’m drinking this after a plate of Thai food with extra Sriacha. Caramel roast malt provides a canvas for the rye and spice to play.

Pours reddish copper with a tan head. Light malt aroma and taste. Far from the best beer in the world , but still head and shoulders above the average macro swill.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear copper with a half finger of off-white head. Aroma of sickly sweet cotton candy and green apple. Taste is medium sweet. Sugar, green apples and brown. Light bodied with a sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a long sweet finish. Overall, meh. Too sweet for my taste.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
An auburn hued pouring beer with light head that dissipates somewhat quickly. The taste is uniquely sweet with a hint of Italian bread. The malts are prominent with a slight caramel aftertaste. This beer exceeded my expectations and I would buy it again.

12oz bottle from the sample pack, thank God this thing was only $7, and that was for a 12 pack, pours a light orange amber with a thin head and bubbles through out, not impressive, aroma is pretty weak, just a hint of malt to it, the flavor has a sweet front end with a tad bit of hops in the finish, really thin through out, some malt, just bland and boring.
