4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
The aroma is a nice balance of fruit esters and floral hops. The beer is a deep brown bordering on red. The taste is a smooth blend of esters and bitter hops. The palate is crisp, dry, and finishes with a clean snap. A very good brew, perfect with my burger.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sweet, hoppy, with a fruit-laced malt center that grabs your tastebuds and makes sweet, sweet love to them. Finishes bitter and easy, begging you to take another sip. Awesome. (9/08)

From a growler fill at Charleston Beer Exchange. A healthy off white head builds from a deep, clear, amber pour, but it settles somewhat quickly. A caramel aroma comes on first, followed by a faint fruitiness and some spicy hops. Smooth, medium body, velvety mouthfeel, and light carbonation all complement each other. The malty sweetness up front certainly dominates, but a good dose of spicy bitterness compensates to leave the finish softly dry. Very drinkable, smooth and enjoyable.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Amber pour, nice fluffy head, growler is 20 minutes old. Super sexy nose of toasted malt, with a touch of toffee and floral hop. A soft entry builds as the malt layers unfold. I get a definite warming malt note of toasted pecan that I cannot get enough of. The hops stay noble and add just the right touch of classical restraint. Obnoxiously drinkable for 6.3%. Beer with soul.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at Brewgrass 2008. Good looking clear amber/copper pour with frothy head. A touch of grain to the aroma with a nicely crisp earthy/grassy hop presence. I though this was very drinkable and sessionable. Some light fruity semi-sweet malt grain leads to a caramel finish with some balanced hop presence (citrus..tough to tell). Smooth medium body. Good Alt!
