1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a cloudy golden orange color with a huge white head. Smells like the inside of a cigar box. Just overwhelming cedar aroma that drowns out pretty much everything else. Maybe a little malt and yeast. The flavor is just as bad. Overdone cedar along with some pepper, ginger, and maybe a touch of malt sweetness and yeast. Not a fan of this one at all.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration Day Two. Pours clear gold with a fine, white foam head. Massive spicy cedar nose. Big sweet flavor, lightly boozy with some honey and plenty of cedar wood. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Warm finish with some alcohol sting, mild pine bitterness, and just loads of cedar wood character. Light dryness, medium sweetness. Lasting woody bitterness. If cedar is your favorite you’ll love this. Otherwise, the cedar may be a bit much. I’m somewhere in between.
