4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap @ CBC, 2012.
Pours clear yellow with a small, creamy, white film head. Aroma has lots of pepper - really accentuated by the wood. Doughy malts, grassy. Very fresh. Medium carbonation, lovely dry and light creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is initially malty, doughy, then turns to wonderfully sharp white pepper. Pine bitterness and crisp finish. Lovely, and amazing what that cedar does to enhance flavours and aromas.

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.
