3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a slightly cloudy copper with a puffy foamy white head that never quite goes away and leaves generous lacing on the way down. Aroma almost nonexistent though what is there is basically classic English hop spice and some malt. Flavor is of modest intensity as befitting the style, with sharp hop spice up front, a bit of light malt sweetness in the background, and a nice fruity touch tying it all together. Thinnish plate, again to style. Not mind-blowing, but done right.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber color with no head. Mucho hop aroma with a surprising amount of malt supporting it. Yeah, the malt disappears after that though... Moderately spicy hop taste with a dishsoap finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft… DLD’08… Cloudy amber ale with a small, creamy, white head. Great retention. The aroma is of citrusy hops and caramel malts. Medium to full-bodied and lightly creamy with middling carbonation. Big caramel sweetness and grapefruit pith bitterness… leans a hair toward the sweet side of balance. Bittersweet, caramel finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark red brown, piney floral aroma that not only has lots of potential but an interesting bark/sappy notes as well. . . After a good aroma, I was disappointed with the flavour, an initial hit of the hop flavour seems to be just what I was looking for, but way over hopped turning into a stale bitterness in the finish and the lingering flavours as well. . . for a short instant I thought there was some malt to be savoured, but it disappeared before I could place it. . .

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber color, low creamy head. Apricot fruitiness. Some butter. Low bitter. Kinda weak overall and not so exciting. There are better offerings from this brewer. On tap at the brewery....

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at the Brewery Clybourn: Nice coper color with a nice medium head that leaves laces.
A bit detergend nose and taste - buttery and toffee like. No likey!
