2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Caramely, lightly nutty. I'd call this a hearty cold-weather beer with almost fruity overtones. It was OK.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2003 Sampled at Honolulu location. Nice amber-red colour, and great caramel and hop in the aroma, but the flavour doesn't hold up and the body is weak.

Draft at the brewpub. The manager noticed padrefan and I actually smelling and swirling and talking about our beers, so he came over and let us try a few extras. He gave us this beer in the Dry hopped/Nitro version as well as the regular. I liked the dry hopped version better. More of everything really. Nice hoppy aromas and a very decent toasted malt on the flavor. Pretty good

Pours copper with a thin offwhite head. Light malt aroma with some fruitiness. Flavor is a nice balance of earthy hops and malt. Finishes dry. Pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap, Brewpub. Pours a light ruby-red with a smallish head. Sweet aroma of malt and some candied fruit (cherry?). Palate is smooth, medium-bodied, and crisp carbonation. Flavor is primarily sweet throughout with a touch of roasts, but a bit too heavy on butterscotch-sweet for me at times. Finishes refreshing, perhaps because of some hops for balance and crispness.
