3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The thin head on a dark straw colored body.
A rich aroma that favors the malt with a little pear and apple.
The taste is mildly fruity (apple and banana) with a touch of pine bitterness. It feels a little disjointed.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Nothing special but not bad.

Looks great in the glass, mahogany brown withy a decent lasting white head. Nice malty nose. The dry hops then level the rating. A decent beer that shows more promise than it delivers. The hops and malt fight it out to leave a "meh" aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a deep honey color with a medium sized foamy white head. Aroma is very nice with tangerines, citrus, and pine needles. Taste is smooth and sweet with lots of malts. A touch of caramel too in the taste. Transitions to a hoppy finish with more citrus and pine. Overall very nice.

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.

12-ounce brown bottle from the Clifton Park brewery. Pours a dark gold color with a white head. Even dry malt and mellow hoppy flavor balance. Nice "long" hoppy flavor. Overal, very nice.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
~Earthy floral aroma of hops with sweet caramel and bready notes from the malts
~Pours cloudy amber color with small disappearing white head.
~Very earthy and woody hop flavor with light hop spice. Bready caramel flavor from the malts. Kinda of a muddled flavor.
~medium light bodied with medium CO2, earthy lingering hop finish.
~Didn’t really care for this one. Hop choice makes the beer taste too earthy and musty. Still drinkable. Just wont buy ever.

Bottle. Copperish-amber color. Decent head. Aroma, that pleasant floral hop aroma not the nasty one. Same with the taste. Nice delish floral-citrus hops taste with slight malt undertones. Not bad.
