3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Supper strong banana/clove scents, with a super pale yellow color with minimal head. Taste is similar to the scent but pretty light on banana flavor.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at brewpub, pours a hazy light golden with a soapy white head and lacing, the arom has a good maount of spices and grain with a little bit of citrus coming through, the flavor has a little too much clove and spices on the front end with a yeasty finish, really wasn’t all that balanced. Not terrible by not great by any means.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear light amber, ring head and light lace. The real "stuff" doesn’t show here until the middle of the palate. Then, what has been an unobtrusive caramel malt suddenly develops character, revealing grain, spice and texture. A short, neat bitter finish makes it a true winner. This is a new one for the Troll. Had they had bottles for sale, I would have taken several back to KY.
