2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma is nutty with hints of caramel and smoke. Dark copper color, fairly still. Taste is nut filled pastry with coffee, with peat and wet hair on the side. Stale oat aftertaste tarnishes an otherwise smooth palate feel. I knew right away that this was a Matt product.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
fossil review dying on my notes on the phone. Pretty sure Brad brought these. Or not. Very malty, dull bitterness, medium caramel, for whatever reason it’s a disappoint beer to follow up a St. B ABT12 on tap. Average boring beer with no issues. Smells: see above. I’m hot and forgot to get to it. Realistically none of this matters cuz it’s a Costco beer.

Transfer from BA review on 3-4-13-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a clear amber color with a small white head. The head fades rather fast to leave a light level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is rather light overall with some light breadiness, caramel sweetness, and a tiny amount of nut.
Taste – The taste begins a little on the sweeter caramel side with a nice bready backbone. As the flavor advances more some of the sweeter flavors fade as a light nutty and toasted malt flavor comes to the end. At the finish of the taste, the sweetness comes back with a light citrus hop joining the rest to leave a lightly sweetened and moderately roasted flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel –The body of the beer was average in terms of thickness with a carbonation level that was rather average. Both are appropriate for the style. But nothing too extraordinary.
Overall – Not too complex in flavors, but it is a fairly easy drinking and slightly sweeter brew. For ~ 80 cents per bottle it is well worth it.
