2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nice and roasty malt aroma. Really dark amber/brown with a vigorous tan head. Starts quite sweet, and the carbonation is very subdued. There’s an interesting herbal/veg accent I can’t place. Works nicely with the toasted malt flavor. Nice for a change.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crystal clear, deep amber lager with a frothy, khaki-colored head. Decent retention. Nice lacing. Malty aroma with notes of maple syrup, honey, kiwi fruit and caramel.
Good malty brew with good balance. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Lengthy, astringent, dry finish. I'll go against the grain here and say this one is terrific for a lager!
