3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a deep copper color with a nice light tan head. Good lacing. Biscuit, bready like aroma with some sweetness with a touch of nutiness. Medium mouthfeel. Very smooth and balanced, drinkable. Starts with a slightly sweet note and then transitions to a full bodied feel with notes of bread and a slight bitterness. I like it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Decent overall beer. I thought the hops really dominated throughout this and didn’t taste too much beyond them. Did pour a dark color with a minimal head. Short finish. Pretty easy to drink.

Nicely done. Hops, malt and sweetness all co-exist very well. The sweetness in question was hard to pin down, sort of tasted a little like raspberries but was certainly subtle enough to add a little extra something to an already drinkable beer. I’d have this again, at the right price.
