1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a murky copper amber with one finger of sandy tan head. Muddled nose, oxidized/aged hops with a papery malt character. Also.....5.6% session beer????? Terribly oxidized and unclean. A mess of a beer. Gross

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy copper/amber color with fair white head. Aroma is different and difficult to pin down. Sweet caramel and honey with earthy hops clashes a bit for my nose. Mild fruit. Taste is mostly bitter with some sweetness near the end. Finish is again mostly bitter. Hops really stand out in this one but it just doesnt balance or finish quite as well as I would hope. Not a bad beer, but not one I would run to again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 355ml bottle on 26 September 2012. Pours a clear deep golden with a medium fine head. The aroma features caramel malt and some fruity hops. The flavour is bursting with caramel, toffee and butterscotch maltiness, which is balanced by a reasonably firm hop bitterness (the dry hopping is noticeable). A quite a distinctive and flavoursome ale.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
5.6% is considered a session ale? I need to get off this planet. It’s a good beer, but please - session should not be mentioned in this bible book. Low rankings purely on the misleading name. Please. Call me an asshole.

Bottle from AZ Wine. Filtered amber color with a frothy beige head. Smells odd. Distant hops, toffee, red licorice. Tastes of sweet malts, cardamom, pale malt. Too candy shop.
