2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 oz. bottle in Dec 2013. Hazy amber color with light retention in the snifter. Aroma is birch wood and root beer soda pop. A trace of yeast.
Flavor is mostly birch wood with hints of coconut earth malt and light yeast toward the backend. Very sweet upfront with a dry wood texture. Light warming alcohol after the sip. I try not to use "cloying" sweet very often but... This bitch is cloying. Hard to drink a lot of it.

(Bottle). Reputed breweries that make Anniversary beers are not obliged to get good ratings. I think that this beer is a typical representative of this and if this beer came from an unknown brewery in eg. Afghanistan it’s ratings would not be so high. The beer has a pretty unpleasant and unbalanced flavor of butter toffee, diacetyl, brown sugar, malt, figs, caramel, spice and grassy hops.

From now on i’m going to double check my burgers condiments before eating them. If I get a frowny face, I’ll know that I’ve let my parents down..

22oz bomber shared with my Dad and girlfriend. Pours bright gold with a thin white head. Faint aroma of birch wood and malt sweetness. Interesting beer, tastes like a birch tree, but not in a bad way. Some heat. Glad I tried it but won’t be having it again.

Pours solid gold with a thin white fizzy cap. The aroma is metallic, mineral, wet forest, wood. The flavour is sweet, maple syrup, toffee, tropical fruit, salt, bready malts, light vanilla. Syrupy mouth feel. A little straight forward, but solid.
