2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tummy bug brown, with no mentionable head. I had it too cold, so there isn’t much I can say about the aroma. Flavour is woody, with plenty of alcohol, actually quite interesting, with a hoppy bitterness that lingers for a long time in the mouth. Medium bodied, it has plenty of carbonation. Must be consumed at a proper temperature, much higher than straight from the fridge.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deeper brown with an average beige head. Aroma is more heavy and malty, consisting of caramel, nuts, fig, and some slight spice notes. Roasted. The taste is pretty much what I was expecting from the nose. It is more nutty here and the I do get a bit more spice, especially at the end. The aftertaste is more nutty over everything else. It lasts awhile, but isn’t very strong. This is very smooth when drinking, with a medium body and some flatter carbonation. Nothing bad to report, although this one isn’t all that special.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours lighter brown with near-white head that thins out quickly.
Nose is soft, light baked goods spices and faint chocolate.
Palate - some maple, roasted malt, light chocolate, and a hop dryness at the end to round it out. Very light in character overall. Nothing leaps out.
Easily a session beer as it is somewhat thin bodied and lighter in flavors.
