3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle… Clear burnt orange lager with a small, creamy, white head. Simple, pleasant, caramel/crystal malt aroma. Full-bodied with stinging carbonation. Boozy bitterness stands up nicely among all the caramel/crystal, medium-roast malt sweetness. Robust. Lengthy, moderately bitter finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured up on tap at the brewpub deep copper with thin off white head. The aroma brings up notes of orange and grapefruit citrus hops and solid malt roastiness. The taste begins with mild malt sweetness before an assertive citrus orange to grapefruit hop bitterness de-rails the malty goodness. The taste then gets nice and roasty with malts midway and to the finish. I could get used to drinking this here. Yum.

[902-20071204] Tap @ Charlie & Jake’s (Melbourne, FL). Sweet resin and pine needles aroma. Clear, dark orange red body with a quick foamy off-white head. Nice perfumey evergreen background flavour has a bit of a pine punch. Medium body nibbles at bitterness. Forceful but no more than a gust.
