3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice amber color with a thick and soft layer of white head. Quite sweet aroma with a spike of light floral-pine hop. Very smooth drinking; starts moderately sweet and becomes pleasantly bitter with a clean floral finish. A surprisingly good amber...thanks to the brewers who are reclaiming this formerly mundane style!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep amber with a frothy whitish head. Aroma of bready and caramel malts and floral and citrus hops. I really don’t get much of the oak. Semi-sweet malt and subtle, but nice, bitterness. Medium bodied. Not bad, though the oak is a very minor aspect.
