2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle says 06/05/14 so it’s 3 months old? Not too happy about that.
Appearance: Awesome transparency in this dark bronze beer with notes of red-orange in the light. Thin eggshell white head that fades to a ring. Spotted lacing.
Aroma: Not much here. A faint caramel scent but pretty dead in the aroma department.
Taste: Light bread crust and a touch of caramel. A slight hoppy tinge of spice. Clean beer. No bitterness to speak of.
Palate: It is very light with low carbonation which is good, but it could be smoother.
Overall: It’s a pretty good beer but it is rather nondescript. I did enjoy the beer but it felt very held back. It probably isn’t a beer I would look for again unless it was fresh from a keg.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
nose: grain, dry grass, earthy hops, toffee.
palate: same as the nose but earthier. very dry. the oak is fairly present in tannin and a lick of vanilla. the hops add an herbal, tinyly bitter aftertaste. seems timid but otherwise not bad. my only complaint is the mouthfeel which feels very thin.
