NYE bottle share at Proof. Pours a perfect light amber brown. Really good amount of cream colored head. Head and collar last really well. Aroma is biscuity, caramel and some floral hops. Taste is wonderfully the same. Well balanced and delicious. Great medium body and carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Total Wine shared at Adam’s house. Pours a lighter orange with a serious head. Some lacing. Nose is fruity with orange and mango with a slight hop pineness and oxidation. Taste is some fruit like orange and mango with a hop pineness, cardboard, and cereal grains. Rather oxidized. A sort of papery, cardboard finish. Mediocre.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lasting thin almond coloured head atop a cloudy orange brown body. Nose of nail polish, cantaloupe and smooth malt. Good? Very fruity and somewhat toasted? Really strange.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Deep golden colour, small head, which disappears quite fast. Aroma is sweet malts, some alcohol, a bit fruity and floral notes along with some raisins as well as toffee. Flavour is being quite similar, but suits together rather well in a nice sweetness to it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice malty aroma with a hint of candied fruit and fig. Beautiful color and lacing. Average weight palate and carbonation. Bold lager flavors with a strong malt earthiness but not too musty. The alcohol was felt but not boozy. Hops make a minor presence.

Hazyish orange, folded white ringed head. Lean fuzzy mandarin malt nose. Snappy bitterness. Slight gummy citrus. Fairly softly spoken carbonation. Finish is clean melon, soft grapefruit bite - this is got some decent teeth without showing the ABV.
