3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml. Nice looking pour is mostly clear, orange-amber with a sticky covering of foam. Mild nose of toffee, roasted corn and mineral. Flavors of caramel, toast, dry grass, toasted pecan, lightly spicy yeast. Almost seems like some earthy peat and/or cocoa powder in the finish. Near-medium body has smooth medium carbonation and a nice balance. Seems like a richer, spicier Vienna or Oktoberfest, yet somehow with a more crisp finish than those venerable styles typically have. Pretty good sessioner.

Aroma of peaches, pears, very fruity, champagnelike. Little cloudy golden/orange colour with a tiny white head. Flavours are pretty bitter and dry, underneath i taste plums, wood, and sourish/bitter hops. A bit caramel/malty aftertaste and tinckling on the tongue and cheeks. Nice!

Not sure if this beer was too old, but it seemed stale. Hefe in appearance and lightly citrusyness. Lots of hay and grass hops, earthy and unappealing at the end.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours grayish dark amber with a beige head. The entire profile reminds me of lemon dark tea. Aroma is quite malty and not overly sweet. Flavor had subtle lemon and sweet tea like malt flavors with a balanced more sweet than bitter ending.
