3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is roasted malts, caramel, cereal and citrus. Relatively light overall. Taste is light sweet malts, passion fruit, citrus, melon and lemongrass. A slightly earthy and tarty hopiness prevails and is well balanced without dominating. Appearance is a hazy amber with a laced pearl head retains quite well.

Must be a bad bottle because this is not good. Aroma of caramel and dead cat. Less cat in the taste but that’s about best I can say for it.

Clear Copper pour, with a medium off white head. Aroma is bready, some nice caramel, and a subtle herbiness. Nice mouthfeel, solid, and the carb is perfect. The finish is semi sweet, minimal bitterness with some soft grassy hops in the end with a nice nutty maltiness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Reddish copper in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of bready malts, caramel, and mild fruit. Flavors are of sweet bread dough, dried red berries, and a bit of herbal and citrus. Somewhat of a tree bark bitterness, with a slightly twangy mineral finish. Lots going on here. Pretty good for the style if Alts are your thing.
