3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 21, 2010 Aroma is caramel, earthy, light smoke. The appearance is an amber color, white head. The flavor is malt forward, caramel, expected for the style and notes of earth, smoke. The finish is piney hops. Medium body. Nothing out of the ordinary, just a good representation of the style.

Pours a ruby red color with tiny head. Aroma is of crystal malts which impart some sweetness. Taste is somewhat of a malty sweetness with little to no hop bitterness. Alcohol is hidden well making it very drinkable. Not too shabby.
