3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was a great beer. I had no idea there was any pomegranate in this one until they told me. It doesnít taste fruity at all (which is a good thing). Aroma was sweet and of caramel malt and hops. Body was medium. Finish was clean. This beer is 10% alcohol? It was so easy to drink, Iím surprised. Damn good beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a transparent mahogany ruby with an airy frothy light tan head that leaves clumps of lacing as it subsides. Aroma of semi-sweet and fruity caramel malt and lots of fresh hops. Full body starts with some mildly sweet caramel malt well balanced with lots of fresh bittering hops and a hint of citrusy fruit. Finishes fairly warming and bittersweet. Could use a little more balance and some time to age as itís a bit fresh right now.

Huge dirty white head, rough poured, lovely clear amber colour. Malty aroma with fruit. Bland palate, but intense flavours of alcohol after a bit. Whoof!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a crystal clear deep orange amber color and large off-white head. If the head lasted a little longer I would have given it a 5. Sweet malty aroma with some fruity notes. I would say itís pomegranate because it says so. I would never have guessed it though. Alcohol is pretty hidden in the aroma. The flavor has a short fairly sweet malty start then some fruit. The bitterness and alcohol pepperness start midway and goes to the finish. Silky mouthfeel and medium bodied. Light bubble gum as this warmed. This actually smoothed out as it warmed where usually the alcohol shows more.
