Nose is sweet, almost floral. Flavor is very light, with a nicely sweet malty flavor. Has some hints of freshly cut grass and spring flowers, yielding a subtly complex, very drinkable beer.

pours a beautiful copper with a nicely retained white head. sweet, alcoholic, slightly spicy(cinnamon?) aroma. bready and sweet malty flavours. 6.5%abv seems a little too apparent. slightly bitter finish.

very sweet aroma - apricot and alcohol scent. Lovely copper colour, clear, good head retention. Relatively light taste - hints of caramel and sweet malty finish.

Had a huge bottle of this tonight. I realized before I opened it that I don’t have a
corkscrew any longer. So I grabbed the vise grips; problem solved. Strong but fresh nose
of alcohol, resin and pine, caramel and flowers. Pours a medium clear ruddy orange. The
large off-white/beige head is frothy and mostly diminishing with virtually no lacing. Starts
and finishes with a malty sweetness, and almost no acidity. The medium body is creamy
and soft, and feels alcoholic at the finish. An interesting style. Would be wonderful with

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Average foam atop a very mirky deep amber. Aroma is highly accentuated with rich caramel and nuts. The typicality of this style which had me yearning for more. Soft hints of wood, cork, and perfume are showcased in a less subtle fashion. Average mouthfeel. Predictable flavors of caramel, toast, and nuts. Finishes lightly acidic. Not much worth writing about here. Simply a solid beer to drink with your non-beer loving cousin whilst enjoying game seven of the World Series.

A beutiful amber beer but with no head. The aroma is slightly malty sweet. The taste is soft with a great malt blend - slightly sweet with a good bitterness. It gets better with each sip.

Amber colur, slightly hazy. Nice head. Some toffee-aroma. Goes down easy. Somewhat watery.
Gets sweeter in the finish.
