4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is sweet/syrupy malts, pine and a slight perfume quality. The flavor is very malty, nutty and and the hops make their presence in the finish. Maltier than I as expecting, this was almost like an ASA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. An unclear, golden-orange beer wtih a small, dense, dark beige head. The aroma is citrusy and piney with generic fruityness and sugar. A touch of alcohol and peaches too. The flavor is a bit on the sweet side, but pleasant, with bitterness and hoppy flavors like citrus, pine cones and some peaches. Full-bodied and slightly warming, finishing with a lasting bitterness. Overall, really nice, but a bit on the sweet and warming side. 110930
