Keg at FanÝ Meet the Brewer, King William IV. It pours deep amber, with a thick yellow-white head. The nose is pine, resin, underlying caramel/toffee and Stroopwafel. The taste is caramel, toffee, pine, resin, leaf, some tropical fruit, leather, honey and hot cross bun, with a bitter-dry finish. Underlying sweetness hides the alcohol very well. Medium-full body and fine carbonation. Enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden yellow color with some appreciable white head. Decent lacing. Super crazy grapefruit and estery fruitiness. Super grapefruit taste as well. Nice malt backbone to support the rediculous hop profile, but it comes off a bit boozey. Heavily carbonated and nice medium body too. Aftertaste is lightly bitter. This definitely grew on me over the last few bottles.

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Slightly copper tinted amber body. There is a thin, light khaki head. The nose is candy sweet with some notes of grapefruit and caramel. Almonds are also present. This tastes incredibly sweet with tons of straight up sugar and black tea notes. A small bit of almonds are in the back end, but it canít balance out this sugar bomb. A boozy hot mess. Pretty gross.

Draft in a sampler at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a semi-cloudy gold with a small white head. Aroma of sweet and caramel malts, pine, honey, grass, sugars- a lot of resinous sweetness. Flavor of sweet malts, honey, sugar, resin, nectar, and dried apricots and golden raisins. Medium-full bodied, with moderate carbonation and a chewy, sweet mouthfeel. Sweet and big.
