3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location/Date:Bottle on November 7th, 2012.
Appearance: Pours a nice dark caramel clear.
Aroma: Aroma is of nutty malt, with some hay and faint caramel.
Taste: Faint bitterness, faint caramel sweetness more on the end, hay.
Palate:Light body, a little bit of fizz.
Summary: I have been slow to start out November - need to kick it up a notch to hit 1000 total ratings before January 1st. Per usual I mostly defer for this style to the imports from Germany. Not a bad beer for the style and drinkable, but nothing that would make me choose this over others, even within American options.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark amber with a persistent rim head and speckled dots of lace. Good malty harvest aroma. The taste begins with caramel malt that is challenged, but never overcome, by mild carbonation and bittering. The finish fades abruptly, but not badly. Overall, quite drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of oak, malt, cinnamon, honey, citrus. It really comes out as it sits. Taste is about the same. Flavor isn’t bad, but it’s more carbonated than anything. It’s like drinking a soda that went flat sitting in the fridge for a while.
