3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Belmont (from notes). Pours a slightly hazy orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor is mildly hoppy with an equal amount of malt. I get quite a bit of fruit and resin with caramel malt, buttery toffee, and sugar cookies. The finish has some resiny bitterness. Many better examples floating around out there.
