3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy copper amber with a smallish white head that goes to a thin film that laces the glass some.
The aroma is sweet toasted caramel malts and green apple with a little resiny hop.
The flavor is sweet biscuity caramel malts with some fruity slightly resiny hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with sharp carbonation.
Overall, a decent pale ale. A bit to toasty/biscuity for my tastes but with nice hops.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle. stiff and rough caramel malt and browned apple nose, two things I absolutely can’t stand in beer. I’m perplexed that they call this 5.6% a session ale, which I wouldn’t have guessed, and that it’s been dry-hopped - also would not have guessed. it’s more of a run of the mill amber ale with stewed oatmeal and barley and red apple skins and crunchy bran cereal. cracklin’ oat bran amber ale. funny enough it smells and tastes like a lot of Mikkeller beers.

Good beer. Aroma is a citrusy hop smell. The appearance is dark golden and hazy. Taste is hoppy sweet malt with a medium level of clean bitter finish.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not much to get excited about. Pouts amber with a white head. The aroma is malt, bread, a hint of caramel. The flavor is similar with a bit of hops to balance.

Love the malt profile of this beer, but I had an expectation of a much more intense hop aroma.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a reddish amber with a decent foamy head and aromas of... malt... I’d swear there were rye in here, but maybe it’s just a funk kicked off by the HeBrew yeast or something. It’s not entirely pleasant, and I’m not a fan. After a quick shudder, I pick up a pretty doughy and caramel based malt presence with a little bit of a herbal hops presence. Flavor is simultaneously watery, soapy, herbal and medicinal. No... this beer is not for me... Guess I’m not "Chosen."

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pleasant, easy-drinking beer with some nice hop aromas. Smooth and light on the tongue. Malt flavors are toasty and subtly sweet (toffee). Hops are earthy, herbal and very citrusy. Finishes dry with a woodsy bitterness.

Bottle. Thin head in golden light copper. Thin woody hop nose. Session in the middling craft sense but a bit high in ABV. Light flavour. Woody hops. Good for a few at the game or a. Barbeque.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from ck1 - thanks bro! Pours a copper color with fine bubbles and a rapidly disappearing off-white head. Aroma is of dark fruits, sweet caramel, anise and some tangy,earthy spices. Taste has super sweet fruits, candied sugar, caramel, bread, grapes and some straw. Finishes sweet and grapey with some length, giving it a champagne-type end. Not a big fan.
