3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from a local Grocery Outlet store. Pours copper with not much white head. Aromas of lightly roasted malt and some fruity/citrus hop. Medium body with sharpish carbonation. Flavor is light roast caramel, and a fair amount of spice - like grassy/citrus hop. Nicely bitter. Spicey enough to make it enjoyable. Finishes with a touch of light fruit. Better than a number of Lion Brewery productions.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This copper ale poured with a decent off-white head and a fruity aroma. There is a hearty roasted malt flavor with a bit of carbonation and hop bitterness. A mediocre pale ale, but it’s drinkable.

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.
