3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark gold body with a minimal fizzy white head. The nose is very clean, some sweet honey maltiness and a light touch of hops and alcohol. The flavor is almost as clean and showing that it’s well lagered. On the sweeter side, but very smooth and not cloying. Just the lightest hint of bitterness on the late finish. Medium bodied and smooth with soft carbonation. Decent stuff.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Clear light Amber gold. Some worthy hops, sweet honey and biscuity malts in the aroma. Flavor is a touch too sweet for me, slight honey twang, mineral and early hops and slight sour dough. Lighter to medium slick body.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
appearance: deep honey gold, maybe a hint of orange, short soapy white head quickly fading to nil. aroma: honey, pine sol, aspirin, desperation. taste: very sweet, with honey, cough drop, light caramel and grass, a hint of marmalade, and then a shot of gin. finish: unfortunately long-lasting, very sweet, far too much alcohol. notes: This drank like one of those cheap eastern European strong lagers. I tend to like this brewer’s stuff quite a bit, but this was bloody awful. Drain pour. 12 oz bottle from TW&M in Alexandria, Virginia.
