Virtually no smell but taste is sweet. Took the recommendation of my hostess for a smaller beer than the Burton Baton I just finished but it is only 1% less in alcohol. Hindsight would find me ordering another Burton only due to the sweetness but the taste is pleasant. Being a hophead who finds a beer that smells like cat pee appealing I would still recommend this for people who want a sweeter ale that packs a punch.

Bottled on 10/23/14. I am reviewing it as I drink it now. Aroma is apple like and boozy with some honey and bread. Taste is Chardonnay and peppery bread. Some lacing on the glass. Tiny bubbles on the palate.

tillmac62 (381) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - APR 9, 2015
BOD 1/6/15. Pours a clear slightly amber gold. Below normal head volume, retention and lacing. Interesting nose with both beer and mead qualities. Notes of barley malt, honey and grapes. Light medium body with a somewhat smooth texture. Normal carbonation with just a touch of effervescence in the middle and a nice burst in the finish. The flavor profile is surprising. I was expecting much more of a honey influence. It begins with a mish mash of flavors at a reasonable intensity level that reminds me of a bitter white wine. Grapes are noted, but the main flavor component is a medicinal note that comes in the middle and lingers through the finish. Towards the finish, you detect a soft honey sweetness in the background, but not enough to provide balance. The finish is slightly dry and the medicinal off flavor lingers.

sudomorph (853) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2015
Bottled on 02/07/14. Pours a clear, golden yellow/orange with a thin, bubbly, white head and very fine sediment. Aroma has notes of reminiscent of Innis & Gunn. Almost oaky with sweet notes of mild spice, and fruity esters. Taste is balanced but on the malty side. Starts out with caramel, and that woody/oak-ness then moves to some mild, sweet spice and floral, then a bit of white wine on a dry finish. Really complex. Medium-full body with a low-medium carbonation. Slightly syrupy in the mouth with no trace of alcohol. Overall a really interesting beer. Not a hint of 9% abv. Earthy/woody notes with caramel, and a touch of sweetness. Complex.
