3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This bottle BONED 05.29.14. Nose toasty with grain that’s starting to turn, lightly sweet malt and faint nuts and smoke -- a lot more intensity of aroma than is normal for style. Clear, deep copper-orange with a sudsy beige head. Taste sweet but not cloying, a really nice maltiness with broadly rich flavor, toasted grain and sticky malt with honey and hints of raisin (!) in the bg, slight caramel and nuttiness, a little more yeast/grain in the finish. Hops contribute a but of citrus up the middle but little bitterness. Dries out slightly, fullish body, clean with no alcohol, extremely moreish!
