2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Poured a light clear burgundy color lager with a medium size foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of dry caramel malt with light toffee notes. Taste is drier then expected with some caramel and light molasses notes. Body is about average with OK carbonation. Not bad but really not a style that I dig.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brownish/reddish body with a creamy head. No lacing and kind of thin looking. Smell is of caramel, raisins, and tons of malt. Taste was malty all the way through but left a slight bitter taste on the end. I would of liked more bitter to balance the sweet but still a pretty good beer.
