3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
burnt orange with decent french vanilla head. Malts and sugars dominate the flavor profile but there is some earthy hopiness going on backstage and it makes a curtain call in the finish

(Bottled) Slightly hazy amber with a very small head. Aroma is strong in both maltiness and nutty-aromatic hops - maybe slightly stuffy. Flavor of nutty hops, some dried fruit, grainy malt. Medium to full body, low carbonation. A solid strong ale with pleasant hopping.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an orangish amber with a lot of hoppy aroma. Flavor is rich malts with plenty of hops to balance it out. Not what I was expecting from a string cream ale, but good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a surprising amber/copper color with a good amount of carbonation.
Very bitter with hops, with some syrupy malt. Not that well balanced.
This isnt a bad beer, but it also wasnt what I was planning on drinking.
