3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep red with off-white head. Phenomenal sticky pine aroma with a mild mix of caramel malt and light fruity esters. Flavor is moderate pine bitterness with a bit of muddled caramel flavor at the end. Trailing pine bitterness and caramel. A little thinner than expected. Falls apart a bit, but still, pretty good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is considered an amber ale?! Holy cats, it’s got some real flavor. I had a 6-ounce taster of this at the Lakefront Brewery tour today. It poured a beautiful reddish amber color, nice foamy head. The aroma was surprisingly hoppy, with a delicious citrus hop flavor and a lively body. I wasn’t familiar with it before the tour, but It’s definitely a memorable beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep hazy orange brown cider color with a small light tan froth. Aroma is very nice, fresh hoppiness, nice citrus and herbal weed character, a bit spicy and piney, this is almost smelling more apa than amber, some sweet caramel. Flavor starts sweet for a split second before quickly hit with spicy and herbal hops, notes of citrus before a sweet grainy biscuit yet still bitter finish. Medium body and a sharp carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Purchased at Breeze Thru in Milwaukee, WI; enjoyed on a Friday after work after getting some tough family news. Appearance a nice cloudy brownish red with a rich off white head. Aroma of rich cone/spruce hops, caramel malts, definitely smells dry hopped, pretty nice smell. Taste is nice and bitter, squeezes the liquid from the back of your throat, dry, also has that nice caramel malt backing, slight toasted malt as well. I’m liking this one, nice offering from this brewery.
