2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear and deep amber-red with intricate, lasting lace. Smooth carbonation was nice, but weight was kind of thin. Sweet notes of caramel, toffee, toast and a hint of sour milk. Bitterness was mild. Had a slight alcohol edge. Not too bad, but it didn’t seem to have a lot of personality.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
dark copper brown pour with a thin off white head.
it smells a bit sweet... toffee, malt and strawberries.
the palate is a bit sugary but surprisingly good... caramel malty, toffee, biscuit, grassy, earthy hops and a dry alcoholic finish... the abv% is not unpleasant, it is just noticeable and thinning. .
the medium body is crisp and soft due to ample carbonation. 5/3/7/3/12/3.0

Sample at brew pub. Aroma was somewhat well just stale something couldn’t get a good wiff of anything. Amber body with decent head. Bland flavor with some mild toffee in the mix. Odd brew.
