3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Best by date on the side: 05/17/13. A clear ruby pour with a smallish khaki head. The aroma features a little caramel, sweet cereal grains, berries, Red Delicious apples, and a dusting of cinnamon & nutmeg. Medium to full-bodied on the way down. Caramel, a rich breadiness, Red Delicious apples, candi sugar, and some raisins/plums start things off taste-wise. Some estery berry flavors finish things off along with the faintest hint of citrus. Wintry spices are noticeable at the end. A slight boozy quality is present throughout. Not bad at all. Iím shocked I hadnít rated this already.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. bottle from Village Market, Hampton Falls, NH. Lager glass shows a caramel / ruby color. Small head with little head retention. Aroma sweet and malty with a strange spice in there. Medium bodied, light bitterness with appropriate carbonation. Weak malt bill, trances of toffee and caramel. ABV is a tad noticeable. Also, the malt or hops are of English variety for sure. I find a strange off putting spice note here. I had a hard time finishing the glass.
