A: snifter. pours a perfect mahogany, reddish brown, with a supple white head. moderate head retention, with a faint amount of lacing. S: almost a potpourri bouquet. Malty and flowery. sweet, yet very floral. T: initial taste doesnít surprise me that it is brewed by Shipyard. sweet malts with a hoppy floral flavor. tastes like a malty garden. M: very smooth and crisp. decent palate but not overbearing. D: very drinkable. good session winter brew, even at 7.2%

The aroma is malty and nutty with caramel and hops. The appearance is deep amber with a mall head. The taste is like the aroma with an astringent finish. The palate is smooth but not thick. Overall I think itís a fine beer but itís too astringent for me.

Gold color, pours with a frothy beige head. Flavor is quite bitter and has an overpowering pine taste to it. Thin body, unimpressive.
