4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2011 Bottle. Poured a rich copper in color with a very small (less than 1 finger) white foamy head and had poor lacing.
The aroma was of roasted bread malts, a grassy hop and a moldy yeast with notes of caramel, orange and a bit of honey.
It tasted sweet and malty with a note of caramel in the beginning then progressed into a bitter-sweet-malty flavor with a nice hint of citrus and a touch of honey at the end allowing the flavor to last a decent amount of time after the swallow.
Mouthfeel was medium to full in body and dry in texture with a mild carbonation.
Overall a brew with a nice smooth hoppy aftertaste. One to put on the my favorites list.

Versa nel bicchiere di colore ramato, brillante; abbondante schiuma, biancastra, dall’enorme allacciatura e dalla lunga persistenza. Al naso è 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.
