3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a bottle. Pours a clear golden orange with a thin white head. Sweet citrus and some light pine aroma. Clingy and slightly oily. Fairly smooth with light bitterness on the tongue and roof of the mouth. Taste is mostly citrus rind. Not too bitter or harsh but it has a very dry finish. Not bad but not my favorite.

Poured out a deep Amber. 16ºSRM.
Nose is sweet over-ripe pineapple. Nose has a round sweetness reminiscent of a port or sherry.
Mouthfeel is sudsy. There is adequate carbonation. The palate has roasted malty flavors that are nutty, caramel, toasted cracked barley bread, creme brulee, The palate is very sweet and and sticky, sticky date pudding and molasses come to mind. Hops are pronounced with pine, resin and some nice bitterness, not agressive or hyssop.
Finish is medium. Pleasant.
