4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Capone’s for the Cigar City tasting with James. Pours a slightly hazy orange/copper with a thin, lacy white head. Aroma of freshly juiced oranges, grapefruit, honey, lavender, and bitter hops. Medium bodied with a tight, slightly tart palate. Finishes with a burst of citrusy sweetness. Awesome American strong.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
The aroma is a little more like an ESB, a bit sweet and spicy but subtle overall. The dark golden color has a nice white head. The flavor is pleasant on the palate with some bitter and sweet hop notes blending nicely together.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On cask at R n H. Pours a murky iced tea brown colour with a small off white head. Aroma of tangy citrus, and possibly some mango. I’m not sure why it’s called double cream ale because of the citrus flavour and hops. Better than the other cask beers during cigar city week at R n H.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
pours a semi-cloudy golden orange with some white head and definite lacing. vanilla and citrus dominate the nose giving it a dreamsicle quality that is fairly enticing. this is backed up by a slight though noticeable grassy hop element. the flavor is a little sweet with a decent bitter finish. not too bold in any direction but smooth and very drinkable. excellent mouthfeel. creamy, one might even say velvety. a decent though very laid back beer.

Nice lacing over a cloudy orange color. Aroma is of cotton caramel and toffee. Flavor is of hops- tastes like a strong Belgian triple, only a little cooler. Draft at Coffee District, Florida.
