3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Bavarian Lodge in Lisle, IL. Pours a clear, amber-orange colored body with a finger-width, dense and creamy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is sweet and bready with a bit of a candy note. Some cherries, a few esters, a light yeasty spice, and a bit of a nutty caramel. Flavor is similar. Sweet malts with a candyish bread, slight nutty caramel, fruity esters, a bit of a cherry, and a light yeasty spice. Touch of herbal bitterness as this finishes smooth and clean with a slight dryness. Medium length aftertaste following a smooth, medium body and a soft, medium-light carbonation. Overall, a decent beer. Sweeter and bready with a light yeasty spicing and a bit of a fruitiness. Nicely made and easy drinking. Decent.

This beer will now mark the start to the weekend for me, and thank goodness, because for a short week, this was a long week. Anyway, this beer was alright, but it wasn’t particularly good.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft @ Sunset Grill and Tap. Amber in color with good head retention. Aromas are honey and sweet malt. Taste shows the sweet malt again with a very light fruit note; I have a hard time defining. The finish as a strange artificial sweetener taste. I really liked the beer the first few sips. However, the bizarre artificial sweet taste really turn me off as I continued to drink it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Pours with a crystal clear amber hued body with a large tan head. Aromas are spicy, sweet cherries, pits, plums, estery. Mild phenolic character. Lightly bready malt. Tons of bright fruit esters for a BdG. Flavors are sweet, musty, cherry, cotton candy, lots of esters and sweet overall. Medium carbonation. Medium complexity. Misses the mark for me personally.
