4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a murky orange-tan color with a medium sized foamy off white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was sweet honey, bread, clove and bubblegum. The flavor was sweet honey and bread with light notes of clove, bubblegum, pepper, pear and pineapple. Nicely complex. Medium length finish of honey, bread, pineapple and clove. Full and chewy body. Well done.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
2006 750 mL bottle thanks to Aaron! Pour is slightly hazy red with big bubbles, thin head, some slight alcohol legs on there as well. Taste is some toffee, caramel, butter and cardboard notes, slight grass in there as well. Taste is toffee, some butter and cardboard, slight biscuit notes but finishes watery and slightly dry. This is rated low, but I’m rating it as it is, probably was better fresh!

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle @ home. Hazy, reddish brown appearance with light carbonation and no head. Dusty, slightly stale wheat, toasty malty, a bit boozy, toffee aroma with done hints of oxidation. Stale, toffee, caramel, mild wheat, musty, cardboard flavor. Well I guess if you have one of these, you missed your time to drink up.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet caramely, light yeast aroma. Cloudy burnt umber in color, some sedimet at the bottom. Heay sweetness follwed by a very faint sour taste. Full bodied & syrupy with minimal carbonation. Definitely not sessoin material, but a perfect apperatif on a chilly november day!
