2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This was my most dissappointing beer of this Sampler Pack. Maybe I drank a bad bottle but this doesn’t rate high for me. Rather bland and too bready for my palate. Disappointing.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear dark golden color with a creamy white head. Sweet citrus nose. Mouthfeel is a bit powdery. Ample bitterness. The malt character is not adequate. And there is a stale flavor that underlies the other characteristics.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Bottled 01/2014. Pours a medium, ivory, well retained hed, with extensive lacing, over a slightly hazy, dark amber (SRM 15) body....nose is light pine, resin, citrus peel from the hops, light toasted malts with toast, biscuit tones, very light hints of toffee/caramel, minimal esters from the yeast....taste is light toffee/caramel sweetness with cereal tones. leading to a lightly floral, pine, resin, citrus peel moderate bitterness, minimal esters.....mouth feel, body is light of medium, clean light acid finish, low carbonation, with a clean smooth finish. This is a nicely balanced example of the style. It is a bit light on malt and hop complexity and could use more in both backbones. Would suggest adding more Cascade for the dry hopping, and a bit of crystal/caramel malt to up malt complexity and body. BJCP 7/3/15/4/6.
