3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear reddish amber with a small, sudsy beige head. Moderate lacing. Aroma mild, but really bready, with some caramel and grassy hops. Nicely flavored, well balanced; malty but not sweet or even fruity, with a nice bitter finish. Medium bodied, a little dry, very easy drinking.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Good sized light tan head of dense bubbles. Light chocolate malts, roasted grains, crusty biscuits and some smoke. Color is a dark mahagony brown. Hoppy flavor. Much more than expected. More roasted grains and toast. Flavor is a bit weak but is backed up by a decent herbal bitterness. Finishes sharp, dry and bitter with a lingering tingling sensation on the tongue.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bottle from Bev4less. Pours a copper color with a medium off-white head that has fair retention and shows some minor lacing. The aroma is soft with sweet malts, pecans and a bit o’ brown sugar. The taste is similar to the nose with earthy bitter nuts, semi-sweet grains, mild spices and a brown sugar character(but without any real sweetness). The palate is on the lighter side, but seems appropriate for this beer and the carbonation is soft. The finish is medium in duration, very dry, and leaves an aftertaste of bitter walnuts. Overall: Very interesting, and very good, me like.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Sprout’s: Poured a dark tea brown color topped with a thick layer of frothy head. Aroma is sweet with caramel and toffee like malts but also catch a whiff of cereal as well. The drink comes across nicely balanced with firm backing of sweet syrupy malts that suggest caramel and burnt sugar while also delivering a gentle usage of hops. Finish leaves behind a taste of green tea.
