The piney aroma is pleasant, but unfortunately might be the standout feature of this beer. Dull orange, thin to the point of watery. The flavor is more balanced once you allow the beer to warm enough for the caramel malt notes to emerge. Finish is long and bitter. Something to have with a pizza perhaps, but nothing very special.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured hazy orange-amber with a 2-finger off-white head. Aroma is of caramel-sweet malt and molasses, with a light piney hops note beneath. Body is medium and just a touch watery. Mildly dry finish. Flavor is of caramel mixed with piney hops. The sweetness of molasses appears at the back. Hoppier than I expected.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured into snifter a hazy deep gold. Aroma is Carmel malts, grassy hops, slightly piney like a walk in the Pines on a hot day , slightly toasted grass and pine resins. Taste is cereal, bready, toasted malts. An English profile. Pine bitterness in the finish but it is nicely soft. Body is light and smooth. Small white head and lace with mild carbonation. Very drinkable, well done, I enjoyed this one.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a heady hazy dark golden, lots of sediment. Nose is piney hops, burnt sugars, some citrus, molasses. Taste is lots of piney hop, dry, spicy hop, bitter hop finish lingers. Reads more like an ESB than an old ale, malts hidden behind the hops. Not terrible, not what I want.
