3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours a reddish amber hue with a miniscule fizzy/foamy head. Carbonation & lacing provide the assurance that this should be tasty. Aroma is of malts, grain, and caramel. Initial taste is a sweet malty brown sugar, but towards the end you get a very very minor hop bite which then quickly fades. Slight alcohol taste at the finish. Mouthfeel was a bit thin. Head has now disappeared, and the lacing wasn't as good as expected, but this Strong Ale was decent enough.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
rusty copper color.. crystal clear.. deep orange.. short head that dropped in no time... no lacing.
Bready malts and piney hops are front and central.. some fruitiness.. warm toastiness as it warms up.
Nice medium body is appealling.. carbonation is fairly explosive but really only shows itself on my tongue.. palate is good but not great.. caramel and munich malts.. American hops... biscuity finish with a blast of pine.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Versa nel bicchiere di colore ramato, brillante; abbondante schiuma, biancastra, dall’enorme allacciatura e dalla lunga persistenza. Al naso č ricca ed invitante, note maltate, floreali, luppolo ed agrumate; altre note di frutta tropicale fanno da contorno. Al palato presenta una grande spina dorsale di malto, accompagnata da note agrumate e luppolate, con sentori di frutta dolce e caramello. Dal corpo medio, con una moderata carbonazione; si lascia bere facilmente con un finale secco e dissetante.

Poured from bottle.
Nice aroma of bread and honey.
Appearance is copper with big lacing head.
Tasting caramel, hops, pepper, molasses, banana, spice.
Palate is actually a bit thin considering all the flavors.
Overall, an interesting brew.
