3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a clear medium brown color with a beige head. Aroma had a nice caramel malt presence upfront. There was a mix of toffee notes, candied sugar and a slight hint of citrus hops. Flavor had mostly sweet flavors. Caramel malts were great there was a nice added sweetness from the candied sugar flavors. There was just enough bite from the hops and alcohol to keep this beer from being cloying. Carbonation seemed a little high. There was a little bit of nice sediment at the bottom of the bottle.

Aroma is light roasted malts, clove and honey. Taste is light sweet malts, honey, a light earthiness and subtle dark fruits and apple. Appearance is a hazy bronze with a medium pearl head that retains fairly well.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours beautiful amber, beautiful foamy head. Nice. Aroma is sweet, fruity, soft like a pillow. Taste has caramel, toffee, even some muted bitterness like a lager but its not like a lager at all. Strong lager, drinking really well. Average body. You can feel the alcohol but if to say that this has 9%, would not believe that. Goes down even too effortlessly.
