3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Originally reviewed: 5/11/10. 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a transparent dark orange with a thick off-white head resting on the top. Retention is fair; leaves some light lace on the glass. Scents of sweet malts, honey, and a faint piney resin on the back end.
The mouth is firm with a crisp carbonation front, and a smooth finish. Great sweet malty flavors that mix well with a moderate hop bitterness. Some fresh bread aftertaste. I could drink these all the time, and with this beer being sold everywhere in the city, I just may. Much better than anticipated.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Starts out ok, some sweet caramel and a touch of molasses. Goes astray with notes of fig and apple. Strange tart citrus notes. Holiday spices and a little earthiness. Would not like to see more than one of these sitting in my fridge.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Beer of the month club. Clear deep golden color with a small of-white head. Aroma of slightly biscuity/cookie-ish malt and some nice floral hops. Later a bit of butter. Slightly sweetish malt flavor, somewhat fruity, quickly turns to bitter floral and citric hops. Medium-bodied. Quite enjoyable.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12/25/11. Merry Christmas! 12oz bottle courtesy Cavie! Clear light copper pour with a small khaki head that fades to nothing and doesn’t lace at all. Light aroma with a touch of citrus, mostly lemon peel. Gross flavor of lemon peel, apples, butter, butterscotch, and burnt caramel. This is a disaster.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice clear copper body with a thin white head. Head seemed to have good retention and some mild lace. Aroma had a big caramel malt presence upfront with some brown sugar notes. There was a slight spice note to it. Some floral hops in the back. Overall aroma was sweet, but with just the right amount of sweetness. Flavor had big malts as well mostly caramel but the brown sugar element was a little more prevalent. Some floral hops to balance it out and there was that spice element from the aroma almost like nutmeg. Finish was smooth and light. A good beer that was a little more malt based than hops.
